If you want to make sure you’re the first to hear about Facebook’s latest updates to its developer ecosystem but can’t make it to San Francisco for F8 on April 12, you might want to quickly sign up to attend a live viewing party in your local city.

As 70 percent of devs that work on Facebook aren’t actually based in the US, it only makes sense to open up the event. Each party is partnered with a local tech hub.

For the first time, the company will also be streaming the conference on its own platform, so if you’d rather stay in, you can also catch the highlights on Facebook by signing up here. You’ll get a reminder ahead of the date.
