About Facebook F8
Facebook F8 is an annual event intended for developers and entrepreneurs who build or plan to build their products and services around the social network’s product portfolio. The name F8 derives from the Facebook tradition of having 8-hour hackathons. Each year, the conference begins with Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, taking the stage followed by a number of key figures with their breakout sessions. Facebook often introduces new features, products or makes announcements during the conference.
This year’s Facebook F8 will be held at Fort Mason, San Francisco, California and will be held on April 12 and April 13 2016. Facebook will announce some new products, tools and reveal some interactive demos. Speakers will help developers in growing and monetizing their apps the right way.
