We’ve been talking about Open Badges at a higher introductory level for quite some time now and we felt it was time to take the conversation further during this year’s event. There is tremendous work around Badges happening in the UK and Europe, with Doug Belshaw, our Skills and Badges lead, guiding and advancing the conversation.
Leaning on the partner relations cultivated through Doug and fellow colleague of ours, John Bevan, we thought we should take advantage of the locality of the event in London and really highlight the work taking place in and around the UK. We invited several of these partners to join us in the conversation, showcase their work around badges and share lessons learned. But we wanted to stay true to the Mozilla maker motto by allowing a forum for active making.
