The Lead Developer New York

Be a better technical leader

Meet our speakers

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 and meetups in London, New York and Austin to learn from the best in technical leadership.

Pre-conference meetup on April 29

You're invited to our meetup on April 29 hosted by Squarespace. You can look forward to really interesting talks on how to improve learning and effectively communicate the value and importance of your work. RSVP here.

New workshop: Share your work

Have you put off that blog post, CFP application, or company presentation because you don't feel like an "expert"? Sara Wachter-Boettcher and Katel LeDû team up to help you identify your expertise, discover who to share your ideas with, and learn how to communicate with authenticity and credibility.

Our speakers

Scholarship program

We run a scholarship scheme to help make the conference more inclusive and to support those who can't cover the cost of a ticket. In some cases, we can also cover and accommodation costs as well.

The deadline has passed for this year's conference but we run the program for our other conferences in different cities throughout the year.
