Weekly Update 80: Webcasts and Meetups
'Tis the season of giving! So stop by at our Code for Philly + DuckDuckGo Meetup on December 8. This is especially good if you're new to open source and you're anxious about contributing.
Is it Christmas? And other holidays
Give yes or no answers to questions like "is it christmas".
Get information about cars using Edmunds API.
Get book reviews from the New York Times!
GitHub: result links to an empty repo
Some of the results return an empty repository. See if you can filter these out.
Timer: Start automatically if time was given as search query
For queries such as "timer 10 minutes" the timer should start immediately.
Launch Library: Add ability to filter by time or country
Trigger with "next rocket launches in Japan" or "upcoming rocket launches in December"
Conversions: floating point error (feet to inches)
There are some floating point errors with some conversions.
Sort: Needs to ensure it has a remainder to sort
Sort still shows up even if there's nothing to sort.
Have a good weekend!
