Credly and Eventbrite Partner to Help Event Organizers Simply and Easily Certify Attendee Participation

Integration Automates the Issuing of Official Digital Badges, Enabling Event Participants to Effortlessly Promote Their Involvement

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - Credly, the leader in recognizing achievement with digital badges and credentials, today announced a partnership with Eventbrite, the largest marketplace for live experiences. Through the new Credly and Eventbrite integration, organizers certify and reward participation in events with official digital badges. Attendees showcase this official record of their involvement by sharing their digital badges on social and professional networks including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

"People are demanding ways to tell the full story of their interests, skills, achievements, and contributions -- and this includes those they demonstrate by participating in real-time events," said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO & Founder of Credly. "This integration allows organizers to meet these demands, while also enhancing their event marketing."

Credly allows event organizers using Eventbrite to issue digital badges at different stages of an event's lifecycle. If increasing event registration is the key objective, organizers can choose to automatically issue badges as people register. When verifying attendance is critical, they can set badges to be issued as attendees check in or at the conclusion of the event. In addition, Eventbrite registration lists may be synced with Credly contact lists, allowing organizers to issue additional badges before, during or after an event.

By participating in conferences, conventions, classes, festivals, fundraisers, endurance and other events, attendees show their contributions and commitment to the causes, communities and trades they care about, as well as to their own professional learning and personal growth. Digital badges meet the need of acknowledging this involvement in a personalized and public way, without the cost, time and resources needed to generate paper certificates.

"Digital badges memorialize commitment, contributions and relationships -- which are on display at the best events," added Finkelstein, who previously founded LearningTimes, a leading producer of online events, outreach and learning programs for groups like the Smithsonian, American Library Association, John Hopkins University, YMCA, and the New York City Department of Education.

"Whether it's finishing that 10K race, or completing a cooking class, people love to discuss their offline achievements online. How people spend their often very limited free time is a reflection of their true passions," said Dylan Serota, Platform Manager at Eventbrite. "By partnering with Credly, Eventbrite adds another layer to our social media sharing, helping people broadcast their achievements and allowing event organizers to recognize attendee involvement."

Features include:

  • Digital badges are personalized and officially verified by the event organizer
  • Organizers can track and analyze where people share Eventbrite-issued badges through detailed Credly Reports
  • Badges shared on social media and professional networks can redirect to the organizer's website, helping attract new participants while putting the credibility of their brand behind each badge
  • When used in connection with Eventbrite's Entry Manager app, attendees can earn digital badges the moment their tickets are accepted at the door
  • Credly badges are compatible with the "Open Badges" standard

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances ...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities – ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups. As a result, many firms employ new business models that place enormous impor...
