LeadDev Meetup

COVID-19 update (June 8): We’ve been carefully reviewing the situation around the world regarding Covid-19 and the effect it has had on our community and our ability to come together at large conferences. To bring some certainty, and so that our entire community can feel comfortable travelling to and attending our events, we have decided to further postpone our in-person conferences until 2021.

We’re continuing to follow advice from public health authorities and will only relaunch our in-person meetups when it’s safe to do so. In the meantime, we look forward to connecting with the community virtually. Join our Slack workspace, follow us on Twitter and let’s stay connected.

Engineering leadership meetups

In 2015, 350 tech leaders joined us in London for the first edition of The Lead Developer. Fast forward to this year: thousands of Lead Developers, Engineering Managers and CTOs are joining us at events in London, Edinburgh, New York, Austin, Berlin, San Francisco, and Tokyo!

We're so excited by the warmth and enthusiasm of the community at our conferences to help each other learn and grow in their roles as leaders of technical teams. With so many members passionate about developing themselves and their teams, we wanted to give the community more opportunities to get together so we created Lead Dev Meetup.

The community-led events will feature talks, networking and refreshments in the safe and inclusive environment that you've come to expect from us.
