Being a technical leader is hard

Whether you are scaling a team, coaching and developing your reports, or trying to stay ahead of the latest tech developments – you’re constantly juggling priorities while making business-critical decisions and releasing high-quality products.

The Lead Developer London is a two-day conference packed full of inspirational and practical sessions from the world’s top technical leaders, focussed around three core themes: teams, tech and tools.

If you're next level up in your leadership journey, then check out Lead Dev Manager of Managers - a new one-day event specifically aimed at the needs of Directors, Heads and VPs of Engineering, and CTOs. This is a unique opportunity to meet with peers who are dealing or have dealt with the problems that you are facing, and gain practical insight into how these issues can be overcome. Registration is application-based and places are very limited.

CFP update for Lead Dev London 2020: thank you for an impressive round of amazing submissions, the application is now closed. We are currently reviewing the submissions and we’ll be announcing the line-up and the full programme at the end of February, so stay tuned!

How can I get involved?

  • Sponsor us: connect with senior engineering teams looking for tools to help them work more efficiently and to ship higher quality products.
  • Buy your tickets: Heads up - tickets have been flying off the shelves, so if you are planning to book for you and your team, we would recommend doing so sooner to guarantee your place!
  • Apply for a scholarship place: we run a scholarship fund to support a number of individuals who could not otherwise attend with a free ticket to the conference.
  • Attend our meetups: We host quarterly meetups and there and you can join us as an attendee, speaker, or host us at your office.

Look back at the highlights from our 2019 conference to get you inspired for 2020!
