You're headed to the next big conference or event. They'll likely provide a badge with your name on it, but what if you could have something better?

That's where PyBadger and PyBadge (or PyGamer or CLUE) come in! Use CircuitPython to easily create an interactive conference or event badge. You can display a "Hello My Name Is"-style badge that you can quickly add your name to, or customise it entirely. You can generate and display a custom QR code to direct people to your website. You can also display a "business card" with an image, such as your face or company logo, and a string of text, such as your email address.

PyBadger also gives you access to the other features on the board, such as the buttons, NeoPixels, light sensor, and accelerometer. You can easily add all kinds of features to your badge if you choose to.

CircuitPython's own Blinka is headed to the next Circuit Playground conference and wants to have the coolest badge there. This guide will walk you through Blinka creating an interactive conference badge. Follow along and customise it to fit your needs!

All you need to follow along is a PyBadge, battery and lanyard, we have a few options for each, so you can deck out in the fanciest style, or go for an affordable-yet-stylish look
