Facebook announced the launch of its FbStart program for mobile application startups at its F8 global developer conference in San Francisco April 30, and a 10-city FbStart tour across the U.S. and Europe kicked off in New York Thursday.
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.
