The conference for tech leads

The Lead Developer is an international conference for tech leaders to develop themselves and get inspired to empower their teams.

In 2018, 1300+ Engineering Managers, Lead Developers, VPs of Engineering, and CTOs joined us at our conferences in London, New York and Austin to learn from the best in leadership.

We've announced our speakers

Please join us in welcoming the speakers for this year's conference. They'll be sharing their insights and experience with talks on tech, teams, and tools to help you be a better technical leader.

Our first speakers

Scholarship scheme

To help make the conference more inclusive, we run a scholarship scheme to provide free conference tickets. In some cases, we can also cover travel and accommodation costs for those who need it. We can also pair you up with a conference guide who will be a friendly face throughout the conference – this can be especially helpful if it's your first time at a conference.

Thanks so much to everyone for helping to spread the word in the community! The deadline has passed and we're no longer accepting applications. A big thank you also goes to WeWork and OnDeck for supporting our diversity and inclusion efforts.
