PodCamp AZ 2010 badge hackery

This morning, I received an email from the WordCamp Phoenix 2011 regarding registration (I’m already registered) and badging up. Being the geek conference groupie that I am, I had to badge up. I added the “Meet me at” section you see over there in the sidebar, but the WordCamp badge was all by itself and looked lonely. I decided I needed to add badges for other events I’m attending, but of the ones I’m currently reg’d for (PodCamp AZ 2010 and Startup Weekend Phoenix), neither has badges. The @podcampaz avatar, however, has the event dates on it, so I thought I’d see if I could make my own.

Before you go thinking to yourself, “Oh, that’s easy!” remember that I am not a code monkey. I’m a groupie. Big difference.

Anyway, long story short … OK, short story short, I made a badge with working link and everything. If you like it, and want one for yourself, you’re welcome to this one (code below), at least until PodCamp organizers publish their own.

I’m super excited with this little bit of ingenious hacking. No doubt I’m overstating things. Regarding the ingenuity. And the hacking. But I’m not overstating the excited part. Really, it’s the little things. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for pimping out WCPHX πŸ™‚ Going to be much better than last year – I don’t have the corp sponsor red tape issues this year… mwahaha…

    See ya there

    Thanks for signing up for Startup Weekend! It’s going to be an awesome, and very intense, weekend πŸ™‚

    We threw together 2 very simple badges for SWPHX ’10, but if you have other ideas, let us know and we’ll add them to the list:

    Just added one, thanks Curtis. Whether you were linking to something you already had, or created these in response to my post, I’m proud to be sporting a badge.

    I’ll see you at Startup Weekend, and hopefully before. Any Phoenix Startup Drinks planned before then?

    Ms. Herr:

    I’m glad you asked! October is the next scheduled quarterly SD, so I was considering Thurs, Oct 21. Kind of a pre-SW mixer πŸ˜‰

    BTW, it was in response to your post. Not as shiny as the other badges, but at least we have something people can add to their blog now. Thanks for inspiring us to make them!

    Curtis, the pre-mixer sounds great! I’m marking my calendar now.
