Weekly Update 79: Programming Instant Answer Coverage and New Meetups!
We've collected a list of Instant Answers that are related to programming on our Wiki recently. So if you're interested in checking DuckDuckGo's support for a programming language, or if you'd like to improve our coverage, check out https://github.com/duckduckgo/duckduckgo/wiki/Programming-IA-Coverage and start hacking!
If you're in Philadelphia on December 8, come join us and Code for Philly for a discussion on how to use open civic data to create Instant Answers. See you there! http://www.meetup.com/QuackHack/events/226998933/
There is a lot of information on Instructables, and having the ability to surface that as an Instant Answer would be immensely useful.
