A QR code is a mysterious pattern of black and white squares which your phone can read and you can’t. The point of a QR code is that when you point your phone’s camera at it, the phone will understand the code and take you to the web site it represents. For instance:
But your ideas are bound to be better than ours.
Please, before you start, check that you have the right calendar. This page is set to “Africa”. If that isn’t your calendar, then pick the right calendar from the list at the end of this page.
You will see a list of codes below. Find the one you want, right-click on it (or long-tap if you’re using a phone or tablet). Your browser will pop up a menu including a command saying something like “Save Image As...”. Choose that command, and save the image somewhere where you’ll find it again. On a computer, the desktop is as good a place as any.
Then create a document in whatever word processor you use, and incorporate that image in it. It can be whatever size you want. For a poster to be scanned from a distance, you will want to make it quite big. For something like a newsletter, 1" square is a good size to try, though smaller codes may work. Try some experiments.
You don’t need to tell people how to scan a code. You can safely leave it to them. If their phone can scan QR codes, they will probably know how; if it doesn’t, then it doesn’t. As a general rule, iPhones less than 5 years old will scan a code just by pointing the camera at it. With Android, sometimes code-scanning is part of the main Camera app and sometimes a separate app is needed: different manufacturers do different things.
