Facebook said on Tuesday that its once grand annual event for software developers will be held in June of this year, a one-day online event that may lack the appearance of its top executive Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg).
Zuckerberg has long been a star attraction at the F8 rally, and opened the event with a keynote speech to discuss the creation, goals and vision of this technology giant.
Facebook told AFP that whether Zuckerberg will participate in this year’s event remains to be determined.
Last year due to the pandemic, the F8 real world, which usually attracted thousands of software experts to the heart of Silicon Valley, was cancelled and replaced by localized streaming media presentations.
The past two days of gatherings have provided external manufacturers of applications or services with the opportunity to participate in meetings or seminars with Facebook engineers to better synchronize the software with the technology giant’s platform.
Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, vice president of Facebook application platform partners, said: “F8 has always gathered an incredible community that is building, innovating and looking for the next step of development.”
“We want F8 to take root: a place to celebrate, inspire and help developers grow.”
The reformatted event is called F8 Refresh. According to Papamiltiadis, which invited developers to register, the event will be broadcast live worldwide on June 2.
He described this change as a recognition of companies adapting to the changing world of the pandemic.
According to Papamiltiadis, the live event will include technical meetings, demos and symposiums designed to help developers develop products for Facebook’s “app series”.
