With that out of the way,we looked at a couple of websites to follow up on topics from prior meetings:
- 10 Useful Chrome Extensions for Web Designers from Template Monster Blog.
- CSS Sprite Generator from Project Fondue.
- The Google URL Shortener creates a shortened version of a URL, but it will also create a QR code. As we noticed, it appears you have to be signed in to Google in order to use the QR feature. The Workshop's code below was generated by Google.
- Quirify lets you create a text message that can be read by a QR reader.
- This article from the NY Times lists other utilities for QR codes -- note the reader comments which have additional useful information.
- If you use bit.ly to shorten URL's, QR Codes are now included on the info page for every bit.ly link, and can also be generated by appending .qrcode to any bit.ly link.
