QR Codes

QR Code In 2008 the Guild pioneered the use of QR codes for sharing conference info and enabling participant networking. This year it will be easier than ever to view the conference schedule, program elements, and other useful conference information, simply by scanning various QR codes located throughout the DevLearn 2009 floor. All you need is a compatible camera phone and access to the internet. To decode QR Codes, you need a special program that runs on your camera enabled cellphone such as: Kaywa, I-Nigma, Quickmark, or Barcode (iPhone). The process is pretty simple --- you either take a snapshot of the code or simply scan over it (depending upon the phone and software), let the decoder software installed on your phone interpret the image, then view the output on your phone.
