Facebook announced on Tuesday that developers can now register for this year's F8 developer conference, which will take place on March 25 and 26 at San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center.

The company says this will be its biggest F8 to date, and will feature every Facebook developer product and company, including Instagram, Parse, Messenger, WhatsApp, and an opening talk on day two from Oculus' Chief Scientist Michael Abrash.

Facebook developers are no doubt just happy that Facebook is back to hosting annual F8 events. There was a period there when they stopped doing it.

The invent will include over 40 sessions as well as product updates and "deep dives across all of Facebook's breadth of developer tools, including App Ads, App Links, Audience Network, Parse, LiveRail, Login, Video, and much more."

Attendees can be among the first to demo the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay prototype and get hands-on time with Gear VR.

Instagram's Mike Krieger, Messenger's David Marcus, and WhatsApp's Brian Acton will discuss the future of communications.

There will also be a Developer Garage exhibition area, where developers can get some one on one time with engineers for advice on design, monetization, security, analytics, etc.

You can check out the full schedule here, and register here. They'll be streaming the keynotes and other sessions as well as live interviews from the show floor.
