Facebook and Microsoft to Cancel Appearances and Events
Thursday, Facebook has announced the cancellati of its F8 developer cference. Executive Kstantinos Papamiltiadis written:
This was a difficult decisi to make — F8 is an incredibly important event to Facebook and it is e of our favorite ways to celebrate all of you, everywhere in the world, but we need to prioritize the health and safety of our developer partners, employees and everye who helps put the F8 key. We have explored other ways to keep the pers part of F8, but it is important for us to host an inclusive event and it doesn’t feel right to have F8 without our internatial developers present.
During this time, Epic, Microsoft, and the Unit have everything out of the Game Developers Cference (via The Point). Microsoft said it will “move our digital presence event, March 16-18.” These cancellatis are cform to the decisi not to hold the Mobile World Cgress in Barcela this mth. The speculati is mounting about what will happen with WWDC, but it is still going ahead as planned at the time of writing of this document.
