Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is planning to have its F8 conference for developers on March 25-26, 2015, and it wants to know how diverse the attendees of the conference will be. A Bloomberg article reported on the news and discussed why Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) would like to know details of the diversity of the audience for its developer conference.
This year, on the registration page of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s F8 Developer conference, two new questions appeared about the demographic information of attendees of the conference, specifically about gender and ethnicity. These questions may seem to be irrelevant for programmers who are seeking to learn how to make their mobile apps and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) may also not disclose what the ratio at its conference was like last year, but the company says that the data will help them improve the conference.
“We’re asking them because we want to better understand the demographics of people attending F8,” Facebook stated.
On March 25 through 26, 2015, F8 is coming to San Francisco, which is Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s global developer conference where they invite the technical community to join them for two full days of sessions, workshops, product demos, and to have one-on-one conversations with Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s product experts.
“We’re partnering with a number of organizations to make sure we accomplish this,” including Girls Who Code, Hackbright and the Anita Borg Institute,” Facebook stated.
Usually, male professionals fill about 80% of the technical positions at leading technology companies, but in the case of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), the percentage is 85 for the males. If we talk about the ethnicity of professionals in the top tech companies, we might come to know that only about 1 percent of engineers at Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) are black and around 3 percent Hispanic.
On the F8 conference, product experts from Facebook, Instagram, Parse, Oculus, LiveRail and other apps will share what they have learned and built for developers. Developers will also get access to Facebook’s latest tools, new product demos and thought-provoking discussions to help them plan for their next build and beyond. This conference would be an excellent opportunity for Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and developers, and the questions asked by Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) may help it provide a better platform to developers for sharing and discussing their innovative ideas and possibilities of expanding their scope of business.
