Location London, United Kingdom
Date June 24th to 25th, 2020
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. In our four years we’ve covered everything from leadership to recruitment, team dynamics to imposter syndrome. Our technical talks are designed to keep tech leads current - anything from new languages, frameworks and technologies to case studies dealing with common issues such a rapid scaling. We look at tools and processes and ways of working. Finally, we’re thinking about the personal development of a team lead and how to continue to grow the key skills needed by an effective and inspirational Lead Dev. What we love about running The Lead Developer is the feeling of community. In our audience, we find a total diversity of background, technologies and industries, but a common set of issues. We’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone to The Lead Developer London 2020. If you’ve been to any of our conferences before, you'll know that you can expect brilliant content and a friendly atmosphere.

Directions for applicants
We'd love for everyone to be able to attend The Lead Developer London on 24 & 25 June 2020, but we know that some people's personal or financial circumstances will make this difficult. We set aside a number of free tickets as part of our scholarship scheme. In some special cases, we may also be able to cover travel and/or accommodation. The scheme is open to everyone to apply for but we would like to specifically welcome those who are underrepresented and marginalised in tech, especially people of colour, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and people with disabilities. We also welcome those who are facing economic or social hardships to apply. Other factors we consider are: - Are you currently unemployed and looking for a job in the industry? - Are you looking to get back into the industry after a career break? - Do you have no training budget at your current company? - Are you changing careers later in life? - Do you work for a charity or non-profit? A scholarship place includes: - A free ticket to the conference including food, drink and after party - An optional guide who will be there to help you get the most out of the conference, and to introduce you to new people working in your field - A welcome breakfast to meet your fellow scholars and guides - £40 for any incidental expenses you incur during your trip
