Facebook Officials Cancels Its F8 Annual Developer Meeting Due To Coronavirus

Facebook has dropped the in-person segment of F8, the organization’s yearly designer gathering, due to coronavirus concerns. F8 was initially booked to happen on May fifth and May sixth, not long from now. Rather, Facebook says that it will supplant the first F8 meeting with “privately facilitated occasions, recordings, and live-gushed content.”

In a blog entry, further disclosing the choice to drop the gathering, Facebook’s chief of designer stages and projects Konstantinos Papamiltiadis said that “we have to organize the wellbeing and security of our engineer accomplices, workers and everybody who helps put F8 on.”

Papamiltiadis proceeds to take note of that Facebook investigated different alternatives to permit the gathering to go ahead yet reasoned that it was “essential to us to have a comprehensive occasion and it didn’t feel the option to have F8 without our global engineers in participation.”

F8 isn’t the first significant tech occasion to be dropped due to the coronavirus flare-up: Mobile World Congress was dropped before in February because of comparable worries over the infection.

In the interim, GDC 2020 has seen numerous significant organizations and engineers pull out because of related feelings of dread, including Unity, Sony, Electronic Arts, Facebook, Kojima Productions, and Microsoft’s Game Stack group, even though the gathering itself is as yet intended to happen one month from now.
