What we're about

COVID-19 update (June 8) We’ve been carefully reviewing the situation around the world regarding Covid-19 and the effect it has had on our community and our ability to come together at large conferences. To bring some certainty, and so that our entire community can feel comfortable travelling to and attending our events, we have decided to further postpone our in-person conferences until 2021.

We’re continuing to follow advice from public health authorities and will only relaunch our in-person meetups when it’s safe to do so. In the meantime, we look forward to connecting with the community virtually. Join our Slack workspace, follow us on Twitter and let’s stay connected.


We're a meetup for technical leaders: Lead Developers, Engineering Managers, VP Engineering, CTOs and more.

The Lead Developer is an international conference, taking place in London, Austin, New York and Berlin. The annual conference is full of practical takeaways to help you lead your team, build psychological safety, and support your team members to level up to leadership roles themselves.

Our meetup is an extension of the conference for the community to get together, network and add to their leadership toolkits. Featuring short talks and refreshments, it's the perfect opportunity for some mid-week inspiration.

Check out our YouTube channel for 150+ conference videos on overcoming imposter syndrome, levelling up to a leadership role, building an inclusive & sustainable team and so much more: https://wvnts.co/2zogkjM
