[Jenkins-events] QR code on name tags

One thing to bring up: the point of the QR codes is for people to be able
to have their badges scanned at a particular table. We would be printing QR
codes on everyone's badge, but of course it's up to them if they let anyone
scan it. If the community is against printing QR codes on every badge, then
there's less of a point in doing QR codes.
I should mention that we are really having to work hard to keep this year's
sponsors happy, because 76% of attendees opted not to share their data.
This situation may make it difficult for sponsors to justify the cost for
It's a difficult balancing act!
