Hear what past attendees have to say about LeadDev 🗣️

We love bringing our engineering community together to connect and learn from each other. Find out what they love about our events.

Hear speakers from some of the world's top organizations on one stage

We carefully select the best talks from hundreds of proposals without knowing who the speakers are. This means we choose from a diverse group of people, rather than just selecting well-known speakers.

This year we have looked for talks that can help you overcome the unprecedented challenges faced by the industry. You'll leave inspired with fresh ideas.   

Single track format

You can expect to hear engaging talks from a high-quality line-up, so you won't want to miss a thing!

The track includes a variety of talk lengths, a mix of topics, and breaks to keep you focused and energised throughout the day. Just relax, mingle with your peers and soak up the ideas.

Connect with the community

Express your preference for meeting people with our traffic light badge system.

The networking mixer at the end of day one of the conference and the West Coast meet-up the night before the event are perfect places to connect with others on the same career path and grow your professional network. 

Chat with our speakers in office hours

Every speaker is available after their talk for "office hours" - a chance for you to connect, ask questions and find out more.

  • Nursing room
  • Quiet spaces
  • Pronoun badge stickers
  • Lanyards for those not wishing to be photographed
  • Gender neutral and accessible bathrooms
  • code of conduct that we take seriously

Please talk to us about your specific needs and we'll make sure they're met.

On-demand talk videos

Every ticket includes exclusive access to the on-demand talk recordings for six months before they're made public.
