Project Identification using QR Codes



QR code


ToDo

1. Enable inline linking to allow images hosted on an external website (e.g. the QR codes) to be displayed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inline_linking and/or this: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Linked_images#External_image_syntax

2. Add this the Extension to embed RSS feeds: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RSS

What?

Attach printed-out QR codes to each project. That QR code will contain a link to the relevant project page on the wiki.

Where?

Project boxes and projects in the hackspace.

When?

With any luck from 4th August onwards. I will print out a test batch.

Why?

This will facilitate collaboration as everyone can then find the most relevant wiki page for that project quickly.

Who?

You guys.

How?

I will use the google charts API (credit to jonty for the recommend). That will generate the QR code images.
