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.

The 2020 conference program is packed with talks to help you be a better technical leader, with speakers from Etsy, Netflix, Squarespace, Stripe, Spotify, Mailchimp and more!

How can I get involved?

  • Become a speaker: our Call for Proposals is now closed but we have more opportunities to speak at other events throughout the year.
  • Sponsor us: connect with senior engineering leaders looking for tools to help them work more efficiently and to ship higher quality product.
  • Buy tickets: register to attend the conference in April or register with your team for a group discount.
  • 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. The deadline for applications is January 3.
  • Attend a meetup: We host quarterly meetups and you can get involved as an attendee, speaker, or sponsor.
