About The Lead Developer

The Lead Developer was designed with the needs and pain points of technical team leads in mind. We programme each conference around our three key themes of Team, Tech & Tools. The talks are designed to help very practically with common problems in these areas.


Watch 100+ videos from past conferences on developing yourself and your team.
