When Facebook announced its FbStart program to provide developers of mobile applications with up to $30,000 worth of free tools and services at its F8 global developer conference in San Francisco last month, registration was immediately opened to F8 attendees. The social network announced Wednesday that registration is now open to all developers with apps that have been live at least 30 days.
Developing successful applications is likely a whole lot easier with $30,000 in free tools and services to start off with, and that’s exactly what selected developers will get out of FbStart, a new program announced by Facebook Wednesday at its F8 global developer conference in San Francisco.
Facebook Co-Founder Dustin Moskovitz founded workplace collaboration company Asana in 2009, but the Silicon Valley startup is in the news again, having received a sizable payment from PayPal and others.
How does it sound to be able to start your job and immediately spend $10,000 on your desk setup? That’s what you get if you become an employee of Asana, Dustin Moskovitz’s new startup which announced $9 million in funding earlier today. The startup is not only run by a Facebook Co-Founder but it also has a jam packed advisory board and team of investors including numerous ex-Facebook employees and executives, as well as a number of Facebook board members.
