Facebook’s f8.com went down ahead of the developer conference keynote kickoff. It was offline for more than 30 minutes, and the keynote began without the stream.

For those who are interested in catching the live stream, you can also find the stream directly on Facebook’s page, with the keynote featuring CEO Mark Zuckerberg. We’re embedding it below:

All in all, F8 was down for a good majority of Zuckerberg’s portion of the keynote. Since the stream did work on Facebook’s own page (at least, until it was interrupted again around the Oculus portion,) it was likely only troubling for developers on-site at the conference needing to access information as the event kicked off.

Update May 1st, 1:32PM ET: F8’s website is now live.
