Skyscanner are kindly hosting this event in the Cusco Seminar Room on the 4th floor of their Glasgow office on St Vincent Street.
This evening we’re looking at the DuckDuckHack Programming Mission, how we’re improving the quality of DuckDuckGo’s results for developers, and how you can contribute answers for your favourite language or framework.
Please bring a laptop if you have one, if you don't we'll pair you up with someone who does. There will be free beer and pizza!
Quack & Hacks are a meetup for developers interested in contributing to the DuckDuckGo search engine. The open source platform (duckduckhack.com) allows anyone to create, "Instant Answers" --results that help answer a search in few or zero clicks. We bring together Glasgow's developer community to learn about how to improve results for searches you care about! Check out a few Instant Answers built by the community in the past and join us to make more:
