Our virtual stage will be open to developers around the world and will be broadcast live on our Facebook page for developers on June 2nd. “
“We’ll be showcasing the latest product tools to help you build across our suite of apps, as well as art dives, demos and panels – all with the goal of enabling your growth,” added Papamiltiadis.
A Facebook spokesperson told The Verge that this year’s conference will not see Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appear on stage, instead, Papamiltiadis will make the inaugural presentation.
