    the famous MOVE FAST AND BREAK THINGS poster is on the screen now
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:08:28 PM
    "As developers, moving quickly was so important, we would even tolerate a few bugs to do it."
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:08:36 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:08:39 PM
    But he says that changed through the years.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:09:09 PM
    Fixing bugs slowed them down, so they have a new mantra...
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:09:13 PM
    "MOVE FAST WITH STABLE INFRA" does't have same ring to it"
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:09:19 PM
    It isn't as sexy as the last, perhaps, but there ya go...
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:09:35 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:09:48 PM
    introduces 2 year stability guarantee
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:09:48 PM
    They're announcing a two-year guarantee to keep core APIs stable even after the change.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:10:01 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:10:12 PM
    API versioning is another new change.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:10:22 PM
    Every single API will be versioned, and you can pick which one you want to use.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:10:28 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:10:36 PM
    FB will commit to fixing all major bugs in 48 hours
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:10:48 PM
    It'll apply to major bug fixes, but not minor, tiddly ones, of course.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:10:48 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:11:11 PM
    All of this is focused on devs, and their ability to ship "even more great apps."
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:11:26 PM
    "Another big theme is putting people first," Zuck says.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:11:30 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:11:39 PM
    "We serve a lot of different communities here...but one is by far the most important...and that's the people who use our products," Zuck says.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:11:58 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:12:02 PM
    "One of the things we've heard is people want more control over how they share their information"
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:12:37 PM
    Zuck talking about giving devs tools to make them trust their aps
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:12:53 PM
    The "log in with Facebook" button scares people, Zuck says, because you may not trust it with your permissions.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:12:58 PM
    I know that I've been there...
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:13:42 PM
    Whenever you sign in to a new app with Facebook, you can now go through permissions line by line.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:13:58 PM
    Parsing out permissions is a really good idea, and one that I know I'll appreciate as a Facebook user. It's all in an effort to be a little more transparent.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:14:06 PM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:14:41 PM
    This new login is good for users -- app developers may not get all the engagement they want, but it will help make users like me more comfortable about pressing the Log into Facebook button in the first place.
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:14:55 PM
    "We've heard you can be surprised when one of your friends shares your data with an app."
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:15:08 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:15:24 PM
    now, everyone has to choose how they share their own data with apps
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:15:45 PM
    Giving people power and control to share their own info, and theirs only, is a big move toward reinforcing this trust.
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:16:03 PM
    Zuck introduces "Anonymous Login"
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:16:10 PM
    Anonymously logging in = stealth mode.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:16:17 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:16:19 PM
    so you can try out a new app without creating a new account
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:16:26 PM
    For real, it says "You're undercover" when you log in this way.
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:16:31 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:17:04 PM
    "This will let you try apps without fear"
  • James Martin 4/30/2014 5:17:09 PM
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:17:51 PM
    Our place in the world is to build a stable mobile bridge, says Zuck.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 4/30/2014 5:18:07 PM
    So now we move into the Build pillar
  • Richard Nieva 4/30/2014 5:18:12 PM
    Ilya Sukhar coming to the stage
