Similar to the geeky conferences held by Apple, Google, and Microsoft, Facebook’s F8 focuses on current technology trends, and how the company is leveraging them to build better products for the end-users. Since F8 2017, a lot has changed in Facebook’s vision and its own image in the industry. Other than the incessant bad press about fake news, Facebook was embroiled in the controversy surrounding Russian ads which were purchased through its portal which were aimed at dividing the US. Reportedly, an estimated 10 million people in the US saw at least one of the thousands of such ads which were purchased by Russia.

As for F8 2018, the schedule lists a variety of sessions and workshops focused on areas ranging from mobile gaming, augmented reality to ads and monetization. One of the sessions is titled, “The Impact of VR in Nigeria”, where VR veteran Judith Okonkwo is expected to talk about the potential impact of VR on education in Africa.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be hosting the keynote along with other Facebook leaders. There will be over 50 sessions during what Facebook VP of Platform Partnerships Ime Archibong calls “biggest F8 to date”. Hackathon sessions will witness developers from around the world to hack on Facebook technologies to improve the platform.

If you are interested, the tickets cost $595 (approximately Rs 38,700). Facebook will also be broadcasting the keynote live. You can also stay tuned to BGR India as we will be bringing to you all the important updates.

Last year, the developer conference was heavily focused on virtual reality and augmented reality. Zuckerberg announced new camera effects for the variety of apps under Facebook, along with Facebook Spaces which is a social VR platform, and offline functionality for Instagram.
