From TechCrunch - October 24, 2017

Facebook should have plenty to talk about, between augmented reality, new acquisitions, the Watch video tab and all its ongoing scandals with Russian election interference, fake news and News Feed reach. Today the company announced its annual F8 developer conference will return to San Joses McEnery Convention Center on May 1st and 2nd, 2018.

People can sign up for updates on the F8 website, where registration should open around February if last year was any indication. Last year people applied for access during the two-week registration, and then if they were accepted on the basis of merit, could buy tickets for $595.

The event typically kicks off with a keynote by CEO Mark Zuckerberg outlining Facebooks philosophy, long-term road map and new product launches. Then a parade of product managers come out to demo all the new toys and tools, followed by a day of talks and panels teaching developers and brands how to take advantage of them.
