Hey everyone!

DuckDuckGo is hosting a global open source event this Saturday, August 29th
<https://duck.co/blog/post/196/the-first-global-quack-hack>.  You are all
invited.  DuckDuckGo runs entirely on Perl and major portions of it are
open source.  The theme of the event is to improve results for developer
related searches with new or improved Instant Answers.   Here are examples
of some Instant Answers:

Perl Docs:  <https://duckduckgo.com/?q=python%20pandas>
CPAN Modules: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Dist%3A%3AZilla+cpan&ia=software
Regex Help: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=regex+help&ia=cheatsheet
Cron Parsing: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=crontab+*+*%2F3+*+*+*&ia=answer

The event is happening virtually via Slack chat rooms (and via meetup groups
<http://www.meetup.com/pro/duckduckgo/>).  If you're interested in
contributing or creating your own Instant Answer, email
QuackSlack at duckduckgo.com
<QuackSlack at duckduckgo.com?subject=Plz%20Add%20Me%20To%20Slack> to get
access to Slack where you can chat with DuckDuckGo employees and others,
get your questions answered, and collaborate.
