Announcing the Marketing API Accelerator and Virtual Hack

November 11, 2015ByChristine Lu

Today at the Partner Summit in San Francisco, Aditya Kulkarni, Ads PM, announced the launch of a Marketing API Accelerator that will provide the community with tools and support to help you ramp up and automate your Facebook marketing.

Based on your collective feedback, we designed this program to include three tracks most relevant to a developer's needs:

  1. Learn: Receive tools, education, support, and the opportunity to participate in Facebook events (such as the Virtual Hack starting December 6, 2015) — everything you need to start turning your ideas into reality
  2. Build: Work directly with Facebook's talented technical teams and accelerate your product development. Limited spots available
  3. Grow: Align with Facebook teams and gain exposure by sharing your success stories. Limited spots available

Depending on the track you join, additional benefits include an exclusive community, 1-on-1 guidance, and up to $3,000 in ad credits.

This program is available to developers working on Facebook's Marketing API, which includes ads management, business manager, audience management, and insights API. Join the program here and access these benefits.

Facebook Marketing Partners have access to many of these resources, and they are encouraged to continue utilizing their existing support channels.

For newer developers who are starting to build on Facebook's Marketing API, we recommend that you apply for the Learn track to gain admittance to the Virtual Hack starting December 6.

The Virtual Hack is your week-long crash course to Facebook’s Marketing APIs. We’ve heard from the community that you’d like more support to navigate the complexity of Facebook APIs. So whether you are building a business to better serve advertisers, or looking to automate marketing for your own business, this hack will help accelerate your learning and development. We’ll provide an overview of our APIs, best practices, debugging tips, and product deep-dives. Click here for more details and to register for the hack.
