Sounds good. But you shouldn't be reimplementing bar code modules - there are plenty on CPAN (GD::Barcode:*). One thing that was added to ACT for YAPC::Asia was QR Code support, which I've been seeing pretty much everywhere these days, so modifying that code to add support for 2D barcodes should actually be little work.

I'd suggest to investigate the use of QR codes as well: it could allow the organisers to use a webcam, which is also integrated in many laptops. There seem to be modules in CPAN for both generating and decoding them.
