Layer5 Recognition Program

Showcasing Your Achievements as a User and a Contributor

Layer5 Recognition Program

Layer5 badges are one of the many ways that we recognize the efforts of our contributors and uplift our users. Layer5 badges represent milestones that you achieve both in using and in contributing to Layer5-supported open source projects. As a contributor, this is how you demonstrate your ownership, dedication, skills and commitment. As a user, this is how you demonstrate your prowess, milestones, and meaningful engagement.

See the Recognition section of the Layer5 Community Handbook for details of when and how each badge is awarded.
