F8 Refresh 2021

Build together.

Grow together.

About F8 Refresh

While we had to make the difficult decision of cancelling F8 last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a pause in our annual developer conference allowed us to reassess our strategy and the best path forward for the event and our developer community. For the first time ever, F8 Refresh will be a fully virtual stage, open to developers across the globe and completely free. F8 Refresh will celebrate the developers, creators, entrepreneurs, and innovators building on our platforms and tools. We are shifting the focus back to the developer community and will feature the latest Facebook technologies that directly impact developers.

General event information

Why is it called F8 Refresh this year?

F8 Refresh is different from past F8 events - it will be a single day, fully virtual event. Over the last year, our community of developers enabled growth for businesses of all sizes to adapt to a changed world and accelerate their digital transformation. In recognition of this, we want to bring F8 back to its roots: a place to celebrate, inspire and help developers grow. Our theme for this year’s event is “Build together. Grow together” and we are shifting the focus of the event back to the developer community. F8 Refresh will feature the latest Facebook technologies that directly impact developers.

Who should attend F8 Refresh?

F8 Refresh is for all developers and businesses who want to learn more about Facebook technologies, and the innovative work of the developers who are using them.
