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.
Thanks to everyone who showed up to last weekend's Bangalore Meetup! Many new awesome cheat sheets were developed as well as a couple Goodies:
6 New Cheat Sheets
2 "First" Goodies
Represent DuckDuckGo in your city! We're excited to announce that we're accepting applications for volunteers to lead monthly DuckDuckHack developer meetup groups. These meetup groups aim to bring like-minded DuckDuckHack community members together to eat, chat, and hack on Instant Answers for the DuckDuckGo search engine. The bill is on us 😄Read the full story
