Holopin is Ready to Launch, Claim Your Digital Badge!


Exciting News for Joomla Volunteers!

The wait is over, and I am thrilled to announce that Holopin is ready to launch! If you've been contributing to the Joomla Project in 2024, your efforts are about to be recognised in a fun and meaningful way. Instructions on how to claim your digital badge will be winging their way to you ASAP.

There are currently four badges up for grabs, Volunteer Team Lead, Volunteer Assistant Team Lead, Volunteer Member and Volunteer Contributor. The plan is to create more badges to align with other achievements and Joomla events. So, if you have an official Joomla event planned and would like to create a Holopin for it just let me know.

Remind Me, What is Holopin?

Holopin is a digital badge platform that allows organisations to issue sticker-like digital badges. With Holopin, you can showcase your achievements, skills, and contributions to the Joomla community in a verifiable, digital format.  This innovative badge can be showcased on professional networks like LinkedIn, X, and GitHub, and on your personal Holopin Badge Board. It's a fantastic way to display your accomplishments and affiliations proudly!

Claiming Your Digital Badge

To claim your digital badge, follow these simple steps:

Check Your Messages: Look out for an email or Mattermost message from your Department Coordinator, or Team Leader with instructions on how to claim your badge. This email will contain a unique link to the Holopin platform where you will be greeted by the friendly Holopin Dragon shown below.

Create a Holopin Account: If you don't already have a Holopin account, you'll need to create one. It's a quick and easy process using either email or GitHub.

Proudly Display Your Badge: Once claimed, your badge is displayed on your Holopin profile badge board. You can also share it on social media platforms like X and LinkedIn and add it to your GitHub or profile and personal websites.
