Hi there, badges are a great way for open source contributors to promote their contributions and competence. Probably one should reward contributors to ROS/ROS2 with such a badge. What do you think about creating badges (e.g. based on the Open Badges Standard) for ROS/ROS2?
That sounds like a neat idea, but where would these be displayed?
Would this just integrate into the set of badges we have here on discourse?
Or something more visible like a group-flair for user avatars?
It’s really a good way to motivate contributors’ self-satisfaction, as well a good way to sale the contributors for the future career.
sounds good to me, thanks for bring this up!
E.g. on LinkedIn
For hosting Open Badges people usually use https://badgr.org/ . Probably there is a way to integrate it.
That’s a very nice idea @fkromer. Do you have several categories of badges in mind, or how do you envision it happening?
There are quite a few platforms: Badge platforms - Badge Wiki However the badges themselves are independent of the platforms they are managed with.
There are a lot of opportunities of how one could categorize.
- One possible way would be to categorize w.r.t. levels of abstractions of a robotic system (robot, network, …).
- W.r.t. different kinds of “robots” (SCARA-Robot, UAV, etc.).
- W.r.t. development workflow (design, implementation, testing)
I don’t envision something happening. I just had a stupid idea again.
