Facebook announced the date for its next F8 developer conference. Not only that, but it has doubled the time it's giving to devs, extending the event to two days.

F8 will take place in San Francisco on March 25 and 26.

Facebook is inviting the technical community to two full days of sessions, workshops, product demos, and "1:1 time" with Facebook’s product experts.

Why two days this time?

Facebook says, "Facebook's developer community is bigger today than it ever has been. The scope of the company's products has broadened, and there's more content to share than can fit into a single day. The additional day means double the number of technical sessions, product demos, and onsite experiences for Facebook's growing developer community."

This year, F8 featured quite a few announcements, including the Facebook Audience Network, FB Start, App Links, anonymous login, and more.

This was the first F8 the company held since 2011, so it's nice to see the company getting back in touch with developers. The fact that they've added another day seems to suggest they're going to be giving even more love in the coming year.

Invitation and registration details will be available in early 2015.
