Before starting this assignment we expect you to know the basics of creating a web service and endpoint
In the previous assignment we've prepared the Data Model for our QuickResponseCode records.In this assignment, we're creating the actual Web Service and its endpoint(s).
For more information about the web service, take a look at their documentation: http://goqr.me/api/
