LeadDev New York postponement and your ticket options

Last updated: June 25, 2020

As announced earlier this month, due to global uncertainty around Covid-19, it is with deep regret that we have had to postpone our 2020 LeadDev New York conference.The conference will now take place on April 7 and 8, 2021 at Metropolitan Pavilion, New York City.

Meanwhile, LeadDev has got you covered in 2020, with LeadDev Together

LeadDev Together is a seven-part virtual event series hosted by Anjuan Simmons, who will be joined in each session by a subject specialist co-host. Each session will feature talks and panels from engineering leaders that will ground your knowledge and present new ideas. You’ll then have the opportunity to discuss what you’ve learned in a structured manner – with prompts, exercises, and discussion pieces given to you by our expert hosts.

You’ll attend the sessions with an appetite to change your organisations for the better; and leave with actionable, peer-discussed strategies to effect personal and organisation change.
