A high bar set by earlier creations, a pandemic, a postponed event and chip shortages made for a great challenge and a wild adventure creating the MCH2022 badge. This talk explains how we pulled off our most advanced creation yet. We will tell you about the process of converting a vague idea into a piece of electronics, including the prototyping process and the difficulties we encountered.
Bodging badges in a time where the pandemic and the chip shortage makes creating a cool gadget near impossible. This talk explains how we pulled off our most advanced creation yet (or not, depending on how things go...). We will tell you about the process of converting a vague idea into a piece of electronics, including the prototyping process and the difficulties we encountered.
Started programming age 6 on the C64, coding professionally since 2001.
Created the SHA2017 with the awesome badge.team and helping out hacker events since at-least 2006.
Now señor lead backend developer RoHS at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.

Bringing you awesome badges since 2017. This continuously changing group of volunteers presented you the SHA2017 badge, HackerHotel 2019 badge, CampZone 2019 and 2020 badges and now the MCH2022 badge.

I am an Electrical Engineering student, but studying was never my strong suit. I like to build things, take up projects and make things happen. That's also how I landed in the organization of SHA2017, and in the badge team for MCH2022 as project lead.
Projects of my own include the Metertrekker (a device to extract information from modern Dutch electricity meters), a cheap DIY induction loop amplifier to accommodate (on a budget) people with hearing aids, facebooklekcheck.nl, and various other web-based projects, some of which are proprietary.
I'm very interested in efficiency and sustainability in general, and in effective and engaging education. You can follow me on Twitter to see some of the random things I stumble across or think about in life. :)
Hardware hacker, software engineer, hackerspace boardmember of the awesome TkkrLab hackerspace in Enschede. I work for Locamation, which develops control and protection systems for the electricity grid. The past years I've spend most of my off time on developing the MCH2022 badge, together with all of the amazing people of BADGE.TEAM.
