Clear your calendar - It's going down! Facebook wants to recognize and reward Developers who are able to use at least one Facebook Developer Tool in creating the most innovative software to bring communities together.
Facebook grew out of a hacker culture, and we believe in nurturing the potential of world-changing ideas. The Community Challenge will introduce local developers to learn about Facebook tools, form teams, and begin to build. Join Developers in Nairobi in creating solutions for the community using Facebook Technologies. Save the date and let's hack together. This is going to be epic!
