Facebook cancels its most important conference of the year due the coronavirus


COVID-19 infections – often simply referred to as coronavirus – are increasing, especially outside China, but at the same time, psychosis in Italy is declining sharply. We are however in an emergency period and, to avoid unpleasant situations, Facebook has decided to cancel part of its F8 conference, which it holds annually with developers from all over the world to reveal the news on its services.

This does not mean that there will be no news. Instead of the events planned by the company for the next 5 and 6 May, Facebook will hold “local events” and release “videos and live streaming content”. Below is the announcement of the company:

“In light of the growing concerns around COVID-19, this year we made the difficult decision to cancel the part of the F8 conference which included face-to-face meetings in order to prioritize the health and safety of our development partners, our employees and everyone else who helps make the event possible. We plan to replace the conference events held in person with local events, videos and live streaming content. “

Facebook delved into the topic on the official blog through the words of Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, Director of Developer Platforms and Programs. The company manager wrote that “priority must be given to the health and safety” of all those who are inside or outside the company. He also said that Facebook had tried to explore several alternative options to allow the conference to go ahead, concluding however that it would not have made sense to carry it forward without the presence of developers from all over the world.

A cordial greeting.
