F8ScheduleZuckKeynote650Facebook offered more details on the schedule for its F8 global developer conference, which will be held at the San Francisco Design Concourse April 30.

The conference will also be live-streamed, as a limited number of tickets to F8 were distributed via an application system.

Some of the talks on the F8 schedule highlighted in a post on the Facebook developer blog were:

  • Build: Come learn how to use Parse and Facebook to build beautiful, scalable applications on any platform.
  • Grow: Use mobile ads, push notifications, and social sharing to attract the right audience and keep people engaged.
  • Monetize: We’ll take a deep dive into the new tools and technologies available to help you earn more on mobile and Web.
  • Hacker Way: Learn about the challenges of performance and scale that go into building and maintaining Facebook and explore the many tools and projects that Facebook has open-sourced over the years.
  • Internet.org: Earlier this year, Facebook and Ericsson announced the Internet.org Innovation Lab, which will reside at Facebook’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters. The Innovation Lab will enable developers to test their apps in real-world environments, including simulated network degradation and latency. Developers attending F8 have a chance to preview some of the technologies that will be available in the new lab and test the performance of their apps in a simulated environment before the lab opens later this year.

Readers: Are any of you attending F8 or planning to follow along via live-stream?
