For an overview of the OpenBadges project, and to earn your first OBI compliant badge, see OpenBadges.org.
This repo holds the source code for the Mozilla Backpack: backpack.openbadges.org, and acts as the pipes that keep the larger badges ecosystem humming. The goal of the code (and the project) is to provide a user-centric backpack that allows badge earners to collect OBI compliant badges from multiple badge issuers. The user then has the option of displaying the badges wherever they like.
