In anticipation of the Global Quack & Hack on August 29th, our staff and community have published a list of developer-focused Instant Answer ideas. We'd love to see all of these ideas brought to life so help us by getting involved!
On Saturday, August 29th, we are hosting the first ever Global Quack & Hack – an open source event to improve DuckDuckGo search results by building Instant Answers. Our open source platform, DuckDuckHack enables any developer (novices and experts alike) to create Instant Answers that help you find what you're looking for in few or zero clicks. For example, searching for regex cheat sheet or python code editor? We can show you exactly what you're looking for--above any ads or links--all thanks to DuckDuckHack contributors.
In response to popular demand, we've added 20 miliion new instant answers based on articles from 8 language specific Wikipedias!Read the full story

The holidays are here and now it's time for everyone to take a well deserved break. Most of the DuckDuckGo Staff will be travelling for the holidays this week and next, so please be aware that we may be less responsive (or unresponsive) to email, GitHub pings, and the forum during this time.
The old goodies page is being replaced by three things: an instant answer, instant answer pages on the community platform, and summary information about instant answer results on the DuckDuckGo results page.Read the full story
