Facebook F8 to be purely technical

Around 1,500 developers are expected to be present at the conference for which they would have to apply in advance. The F8 event will include both Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Parse development communities.

The social networking company revealed that this year the event would be more focused on being a developer conference. There will be a morning keynote during the inauguration followed by the guides on the technical best practices, infrastructure strategies, engineering deep dives, and advertising tips required to make the app or game a successful one. The event will also help the developers on how they can draw benefits from open source technology. The closing of the F8 will be marked with a celebration, where drinks and entertainment would available for the Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Parse engineers. The product team members will be available throughout the conference to provide 1 on 1 help and advice.

Parse CEO shares more details

Parse CEO Ilya Sukhar said that in September Parse developer day was held to discuss the great apps with Parse. The CEO said that it was good to talk and discuss with 600 developers from all over the world, but now Parse is a part of F8, which is two times the size of the Parse event. Sukhar also informed that his favorite app of the moment is Threes, and he cannot stop playing it.

Sukhar, however, said that it is difficult to build a hit app, and finding people for it is really hard. Additionally, capitalizing on the app is even harder, according to Sukhar. CEO said that F8 is held with the purpose of solving these problems, and the event is more focused on the developers. The Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) conference will be full of technical content, engineers all over the place to help out, and a sweet party to close it out.
