Facebook recently announced Developer World HACK 2012, a two-month series of hackathon events for software developers. Given the world’s rabid interest in events such as f8, the company’s developer conference, and its Mobile HACK Roadshow earlier this spring, bringing more Facebook hackathons to more developers makes a ton of sense. Since demand for these events are very high, you have to register soon to secure your place at the upcoming hackathons.

“The World HACK series is designed to bring the Facebook Developer story to a new set of cities — homes to some of the world’s most vibrant and fast-growing developer communities,” writes Facebook developer advocate James Pearce on the company blog.

“This year, to recognize that talented developer communities we meet around the globe, the best team we see on each continent will also win a trip to San Francisco to visit our campus and meet the Facebook team.”

Facebook showed that it got a soft spot for hackers. The developer-centric company wrote an open love letter to the “hacker way” in its official IPO documents, and it hosts the annual Hacker Cup contest, a programming competition that brings the best of the technical best to Silicon Valley to compete. And its new campus sports multiple signs, both hidden and obvious, paying homage to the art and science of hacking.

For the World HACK series, each event will last a full day. Teams (or solo developers) will be asked to hack on the Facebook Open Graph; the best Facebook app will win its team the prize. To register for the event, go to: https://fbworldhack.com/
