This year, we will have electronic hackable badges for SHD participants – they will feature a WIFI-enabled microcontroller and MicroPython – you’ll be able to use them as a basis for your hardware projects!

To use the badge, you will need the following:

  • A laptop with Linux, Mac OS or Windows and at least one free USB port.
  • If it’s Windows or Mac OS, make sure to install drivers for the CH340 UBS2TTL chip.
  • A micro-USB cable with data lines that fits your USB port.
  • You will need a terminal application installed. For Linux and Mac you can use screen, which is installed by default. For Windows we recommend PuTTy or CoolTerm.
