Global Quack & Hack 2 — It's Alive!

We're excited to say that our second Global Quack & Hack is underway!

We have a variety of meetups in different locations as well as developers coming together online from all over the world. Wherever you are, the discussion today is in our DuckDuckHack Slack channels. If you haven't already, please get an invite from us. Staff and expert volunteers will be around all day in all timezones to answer questions and generally make sure you're happy!

Today's goal, as part of the DuckDuckGo vision of improving trust online, is to encourage everyone to join and learn about DuckDuckHack, and continue to stay in the community having fun and improving Instant Answers over the long term — it's not a one-day race!

To help you get started, we've prepared these video presentations and tutorials. You can either watch them one-by-one during the day or dive straight in to what interests you.
