I really like gamification in learning and badges, achievements and digital swag are strange motivators to go through with things.
I have seen the influx of people on the Elixir tracks, trying to get their badges, so it is definitely working out here.
I was wondering if that would be a good fit to work together with Holopin. They offer a platform to share verifiable (non-NFT), digital badges for skills, achievements, and other activities on the web. A key point is to show them off via LinkedIn, Twitter, GitHub and GitLab.
They even have a free tier for open-source platforms that features cross-promotion activities. I have seen a lot of their badges for hackathons, so the topic intersection is there?`
What do you think? Would you use something like that?
