Nerd Merit Badges bring the fun of collecting merit badges to those of us with a penchant for late night coding sessions and weekends poring over esoteric nerd folklore. Get yours now in the GitHub Shop!

You can proudly display this badge if you are a contributor to an open source project. Displaying the Octocat will demonstrate to your friends and enemies that you love open source and have the code to prove it!

Each merit badge is 1.5 inches in diameter, fully embroidered, and Velcro-backed. Attach to your jacket, your backpack, or the lid of your over-clocked, battle-scarred laptop.
