Last week we headed over to India to kick off a series of all-new Facebook Developer Garage events. This coming week we are heading over to Europe's premiere internet conference, Le Web. Last year, Le Web attracted participants from over 40 countries. This year Le Web boasts over 1500 participants from all parts of the world, including speakers such as Paulo Coelho author of "The Alchemist".
We're excited to be participating in Le Web and to be speaking alongside of many luminaries in the web world. The theme this year is "Love, for a healthy dose of optimism." At Facebook we are optimistic about the future of a more open and connected world.
This year, we've partnered with Le Web to offer you both great content and a great experience with 3 different Facebook experiences where you can hear about the newest innovations on Facebook Platform, such as Facebook Connect, and do a deep dive into how to create great applications for the social web:
