Generating QR Codes With Python (Overview)

From restaurant e-menus to airline boarding passes, QR codes have numerous applications that impact your day-to-day life and enrich the user’s experience. Wouldn’t it be great to make them look good, too? With the help of this video course, you’ll learn how to use Python to generate beautiful QR codes for your personal use case.

In its most basic format, a QR code contains black squares and dots on a white background, with information that any smartphone or device with a dedicated QR scanner can decode. Unlike a traditional bar code, which holds information horizontally, a QR code holds the data in two dimensions, and it can hold over a hundred times more information.

In this video course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Generate a basic black-and-white QR code
  • Change the size and margins of the QR code
  • Create colorful QR codes
  • Rotate the QR code
  • Replace the static background with an animated GIF
