The social network offered more details about Facebook Mobile DevCon 2013 in a post on its developer blog:

To help you succeed, we’re inviting mobile developers around the world to spend the day with Facebook engineers and product managers at Facebook Mobile DevCon 2013.

You’ll hear about:

  • How to implement our iOS, Android, and JS software-development kits to drive installs and engagement.
  • How to best implement Facebook login to bring trusted, cross-platform identity to your applications.
  • Best practices for using open graph to share rich and engaging stories back to Facebook.
  • How to use Facebook to power engaging social, mobile games.
  • Design tips and product best practices to increase user satisfaction.
  • The tools, libraries, and techniques we at Facebook use to build our own iOS, Android, and mobile Web apps.

You’ll also get to meet like-minded mobile developers and hear first-hand from companies like Fab.com, GetGlue, Zeebox, and EyeEm about their experiences building for mobile.

The day will be capped off with dinner and a chance to speak one-on-one with Facebook engineers and product managers to review your app and debug any integration issues.

This is a highly technical event — we’ll be deep in product and code — but if you’re at the sharp end of mobile development, we’d love to meet you there.
