The last F8 developer conference took place in 2011, but Facebook has announced plans to resurrect the event. It will host a new F8 event April 30 in San Francisco. The company has not said when tickets will go on sale.
This year’s conference will likely focus on the mobile development industry. According to Facebook, “F8 will open with a morning keynote, followed by four tracks that will cover getting started guides, technical best practices, infrastructure strategies, engineering deep dives, and advertising tips for making your app or game highly successful. We’ll also have sessions dedicated to exploring how developers can take advantage of open source technologies.”
Ilya Sukhar, CEO of Facebook-owned Parse, added that the social network has “a lot of new developer-focused products to show off.”
