Global Quack & Hack 2 — It's Back!
Following the success of the first event, we're excited to hold a second global Quack & Hack on Saturday, January 30th 2016. Whether as part of a local meetup or on your own, join us to learn the art of creating Instant Answers so that you can improve DuckDuckGo's search results for everyone!
Instant Answers are the much-loved information boxes that appear at the top of the results for some queries. Our aim is to create them for all queries, with our community! We've built an open-source platform for anyone to create them and we'll show you how with video tutorials covering coding and Git submission. Over a single day, staff, community leaders and contributors will come together to learn and create. You can join us either remotely or by attending one of our meetups around the world.
To get ready, simply...
- Request an invite to our Slack chat channels. Meet other developers in the community who are searching the same topics and preparing Instant Answers for them.
- Check out our updated docs and video tutorials. Get familiar with the code or set your environment up ahead of the event, and let us know if you have any questions at any time.
- Stick around! Instant Answers are like living things — growing, improving and yes, sometimes needing fixing! There's plenty of opportunity to continue crafting your Instant Answer long after the event ends so that as many people as possible can see and benefit from it.
Together, we can change the future of search! Join us to make that happen!
