Weekly Update 74: Organizing Quack and Hack Events
If you're interested in organizing a Quack and Hack event in your city, we're currently open for more Meetup groups! You'll be in charge of everything from Meetup venues to working with the DuckDuckGo staff on improvements to our global community.
Speaking of Quack and Hack events, we now have 4 new Meetup events that you can go to if you're around the area: Penn State University (University Park, PA), USA, Kolkata, India, Lehigh Valley, PA, USA, Rosario, Argentina .
Docset to Fathead Conversion
Dash is an app for viewing developer documentation from tons of apis and languages. If we had access to their data we would have access to a ton of documentation in one fell swoop.
Show games which are on sale on Steam.
Debian and KDE bug search
Bug tracking systems exist for both Debian and KDE and these seem like possible instant answers.
Dogo Books: Broken and throwing console error
We need to check if the objects exist before accessing their properties.
PeopleInSpace: 'People in space' triggering Q/A as default
We need to set
signal: "high"to force PeopleInSpace to show up.
Coursebuffet: Should trigger on "Learn X Online"
Coursebuffet could show up a lot more if these triggers were in place.
Bitsum: Should also accept binary input
This Instant Answer already accepts base10 and hex numbers as input, and converts them to binary. We might as well also accept binary inputs!
CSS Cleanup: Remove any IE 8 Specific CSS
We can trim down the CSS that we have by removing some IE 8 specific CSS since we're no longer supporting that browser.
AUR: Third party issues
It seems the AUR API is having trouble with our callback format, and throws an error if we pass a callback with underscores.
Happy Friday, everyone!
