Thanks to those that answered our quick poll on Twitter. We were surprised to see that 50% of respondents are students. Consequently, it seems there are times in the year, like now, when things get very busy preparing for exams. If that's you then we wish you good luck! Perhaps there are even Instant Answer ideas which could help you prepare, whether it's for exams, filing taxes, or other seasonal tasks. If so, please share them in the #ia-ideas Slack channel.

Incidentally, this week we found a good list of 19 Git tips by Alex Kras which could also help you: www.alexkras.com/19-git-tips-for-everyday-use

Have a nice weekend everyone! - The DuckDuckGo Staff
