QR Codes are amazing little bridges that connect our physical world to our digital one. It’s so much more practical scanning a QR Code, than typing in a full url on your mobile browser. I especially like QR codes that take me to a specific form I need to fill out, usually on site (i.e. symptoms check form or general sign-up form) or ones that take me to a little more background information on something I’m seeing, maybe a painting or other work of art.
Have you ever thought about what goes into making a QR code? I decided I would build my own QR Code Generator using Google Forms, Sheets and Apps Script and the result was pretty cool. Check out the video below.
If you’d like to look under the hood and see how this was done and create your own QR Code Generator simply create a QR Code for any website, maybe even your twitter profile page, use this form and I’ll send the template back to you along with your QR code.
