#432 I've been there

Created a year ago by churchyard

Badge description: You've visited a Fedora booth at an event.

1) What are those activities?

Visiting Fedora booth at a conference/meetup/etc.

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans? users? sponsors?)

Anyone, but the main target here are newcomers.

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)

They want to get some swag. Now thay can also have a badge.

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)

Once per an event.

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console? by using a web interface?)

By showing up in person.

I think we don't have the time and energy to create badges for all conferences where Fedora has a presence. On the other hand, I'm now on PyCon SK and lot of new potential contributors are showing up and asking interesting questions. If we could award them a badge, we can then see if they become active lately or not. (See https://networksfordata.wordpress.com/2016/03/08/fedora-at-fosdem/) My idea here is that we will have a general badge for events without a specific badge. We would need to protect the URL somehow (i.e. creating a specific URL before an event and disabling it after).
