Introducing the Programming Merit Badge

The long anticipated Programming Merit Badge has been released,

http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2013/07/15/programming-merit-badge-requirements-released/

The requirements are fairly comprehensive, and provide much deserved attention to the discipline of programming – something that The Computer Merit Badge was not able to do.

Also noted at the Merit Badge Calendar, there are several computer related Merit Badges slated to be released in the coming year:

  • Advanced Computing
  • Computer Aided Design
  • Multi-Media
  • Signs, Signals, Codes (yes, I’d argue computer related)
And finally, it seems that The Computer Merit Badge will be getting replaced by the “Digital Technology” Badge.  It is my intention to make this blog a resource for anyone interested in learning about or contributing to the knowledge base of all “computer” related badges.
Please join us at our Facebook group, The Computer Merit Badge for discussions about all related topics.
Enjoy!
