COVID-19 update

Following the growing concern about COVID-19 we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s New York conference until August 11 & 12, 2020.

We work with dozens of speakers, sponsors, vendors and partners, and start planning the event more than a year in advance so this wasn’t an easy decision. But the health and safety of the community comes first.

We appreciate your patience as the situation has evolved and really look forward to seeing you at Lead Dev New York conference in August.

How can I get involved?

  • Apply to speak: our Call for Proposals is now closed but you can apply to speak at one of our meetups or conferences in other cities.
  • Sponsor us: connect with senior engineering leaders looking for tools to help them work more efficiently and to ship higher quality product.
  • Buy tickets: a limited number of conference tickets are available. Book yours to secure your place.
  • Apply for a scholarship place: we run a scholarship program to support individuals from underrepresented and marginalised groups in tech. The deadline has passed but there are new opportunities for scholarships in other cities throughout the year.
  • Attend a meetup: We host quarterly meetups and you can get involved as an attendee, speaker, or sponsor.
