Global Quack & Hack: The Aftermath
Last weekend, developers from around the world gathered together to improve DuckDuckGo's search results in the first-ever Global Quack & Hack. During this 24-hour hack day, the DuckDuckGo open source community broke country and language barriers to (DuckDuckHack) code alongside each other and create Instant Answers for searches that developers frequently do. Today, we're excited to share some of the amazing things the community accomplished in that short time:
Cities hosting the event
Attendees to city events
Registered members of our new Slack team
Active Slack participants at peak activity (2pm EDT)
Clones of our Instant Answer repositories
New Instant Answers submitted
As an example, here's an upcoming Docker cheat sheet that you can play with in beta. Thanks to preemeijer for bringing it to life!
We're enormously proud of the community's ability to work together and our deepest thanks go out to all our Community Leaders, meetup organizers, contributors, and friends who made the event possible. Our Slack team will continue to exist as a platform for the community to interact with each other and staff. Our hope is that contributors around the world can unify around the topics they search for and discuss how to improve them through community, open source, and Instant Answers.
Your humbled friends,
-The DuckDuckGo staff
