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 New York 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.

Our CFP is open until October 28 and we’d love to read your submissions. Find out more about the process, the support we provide and what topics we look for:
