The Lead Developer Conference

Be a better technical leader

Meet our speakers

Two days of inspiration for Lead Developers

As tech lead you have to be a great developer. But you also need to be a good team leader, be commercially astute, and stay on top of all the tech developments and trends coming over the horizon. With a balance of content across team, tools and tech, The Lead Developer conference is designed with the complexities of the job in mind.

Join the community of tech leads, engineering managers and CTOs for two days of inspiring talks and networking opportunities. For even more in-depth learning, book a ticket to one of our workshops taking place the day before the conference.

Check out our free meetup to connect with technical leaders and managers in London throughout the year. We organise events quarterly so stay tuned to find out when and where the next one will take place.

We're very excited to welcome this year's speakers! They'll share insights and experience on hiring diverse teams, fixing out-of-hours on-call, building security culture, guiding self-organising teams and so much more!
