At South by Southwest in Austin, Parse CEO Ilya Sukhar announced that Facebook will hold another F8 conference — April 30 in San Francisco. This is the first F8 since 2011, where Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg launched Timeline.

The conference will be held at the San Francisco Design Concourse.

Sukhar offered more details in a blog post:

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.
