With close to 950 million users, Facebook is undoubtedly the largest and most visited social networking site in the world. To build and run such a large website requires some of the highest skilled engineers and coders on the world. Thus a company like Facebook knows the value of coders.
So the company has set off on a quest to find the best hackers in the world. The Facebook Developer World Hack 2012 is all set to begin on August 23 starting from the town of Austin, USA.
Facebook had earlier conducted successful events like the F8 events last year and the Mobile HACK Roadshow in March this year. The event will be conducted across 12 different cities around the world, and we are happy to inform that Bangalore would be one of them. The event would be conducted in Bangalore on September 17. Facebook Developer World Hack would end in Moscow, Russia on the 1st of October, 2012.
The event is open to everyone and comprises of an 8 hour competition. Whether you are a Facebook engineer, or someone just out of College, you are free to join this event.
Every day in the event would begin by Facebook Engineers giving technical sessions to the participants. Tutorials would be given on programming on Facebook, Android, iOS, Open Graph, and social games. Facebook is willing to give Demos and tutorial so that the competition can start by the HACK itself.
The 8 hour long competition would see competitors competing against each other to earn the tag of being the ‘Best Team from the Continent’.
The ultimate reward?… Facebook would be giving a chance to the best team from every continent to visit its campus in San Fransisco and to meet the Facebook team.
If you are a hacker yourself and would want to be a part of the competition, you can register here.
Nobody would like to miss the chance of meeting the Facebook Team, and if you have the capabilities, registering for the event should be the next thing you do after reading this article!!!
