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.

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

Meetup: February 26

Can't wait until the conference to meet fellow tech leaders in New York and hear from a lineup of fantastic speakers? We're hosting a free meetup at Work & Co in Brooklyn later this month.

Our first speaker is Gemma Barlow (Senior Engineering Manager, Etsy), sharing her insights on 'Surviving your first year as a manager'. More speakers to be announced very soon!
