What is The Lead Developer?

The conference features inspiring stories and practical advice on leading and managing technical teams based on the themes of teams, tech and tools: how to develop your team, new and emerging tech, and processes to improve the way you work.

Attendees are Tech Leads, Senior Engineers, Engineering Managers, VPs of Engineering, and CTOs, or those looking to move into those roles, from a wide range of industries including software, fintech, healthcare, and e-commerce.

We're very excited to welcome our speakers! They'll share insights and experience on salaries, guiding teams through rapid change, handling security issues, breaking up silos, transitioning from a developer to a Lead Developer and so much more!
