What will I find at F8?

At F8, we unveil many of our new products. We also offer over 50 sessions and interactive experiences where you can learn about our latest innovations and how to get the most out of our platform for your business. You will hear directly from Mark and Facebook's leadership team on our vision for Facebook, and what we're building to help bring the world closer together.

In our Developer Garage, you can meet with Facebook engineers and experience our products in person, as well as get answers to specific Facebook integrations. Tech leaders will be available throughout the conference either in sessions, Q&A or in the Developer Garage to share product insights.

F8 is an annual opportunity for the developer community to come together to learn from each other and Facebook. Everyone is invited to our party at the end of the first day to socialize and unwind before the next day's keynotes and additional sessions.
