Hey, all!

Tonight is the first Los Angeles Quack & Hack. We'd like to welcome all event participants to hack around on Cheat Sheet Instant Answers for the topics you search (like this)! **We encourage all virtual contributors as well!

1. Think of an idea for a cheat sheet or grab an idea from the bottom of this page.
2. Set up your dev environment with Codio (trust us--it takes 5 minutes vs. 2 hours locally).
3. Create your cheat sheets!
4. Rejoice.

I'll be chiming in via video-chat so I'll see you in a few hours.

Wish I was there :)

I'm onto my first cheatsheet right now, is duckduckhack@listbox.com still up? Or is open@duckduckgo.com the place to ask for instant answers / github help?

Hi romainlg.

open@... is the best address for specific Instant Answer advice from the staff, but for GitHub help or questions while developing then Gitter is probably better:
No need to register - your GitHub account should work.
