I'm excited to announce our global developer conference, f8, to the Facebook and Parse developer communities. We invite you to join us on April 30, 2014 at the San Francisco Design Concourse for a full day of technical talks and hands-on sessions. At the event, more than 1,500 mobile and web developers from around the world will gather to learn more about using Facebook and Parse to build, grow, and monetize great apps.
This year, we're going back to our roots with a developer-focused conference. We will open with a morning keynote, followed by four technical tracks. These tracks will cover everything you need to know about building on the Facebook and Parse platforms, including 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 special sessions dedicated to exploring how developers can take advantage of open source technologies.
Facebook and Parse engineers and product team members will be available during the conference to provide one-on-one help and advice, and you'll also have the opportunity to learn from each other throughout the day. We'll close out the day with a celebration for attendees to unwind with drinks and entertainment.
Over the past year, we've hosted a series of smaller events for developers like FbStart, Facebook Game On, Facebook Mobile DevCon, Parse Developer Day, and Facebook + Parse Mobile Developer Day. We're excited to now have one event for everyone to come together and discover what we can build together.

See you in April!
