Hear from past attendees on their experiences with LeadDev conferences

"Thank you LeadDev for such an amazing and inspiring event! Amazing because I learned so much and made so many great connections. Inspiring because I hope to not only attend next year's event, I hope to do so as a speaker."

Erika Lewis
Wide Eye Creative Senior Engineering Manager

"This was my fourth time attending LeadDev. Every subsequent time I brought more and more co-workers from Vinted Engineering. The things my co-workers and I learned over the years in LeadDev have greatly influenced how we work and lead at Vinted. As one of us said this year - 'it’s the most useful conference I’ve ever attended.' "

Mindaugas Mozunas
Vinted VP of Engineering

"I loved the diversity in the speaker line up! It's important to see others like you up on the stage to foster inclusivity. I also loved meeting speakers and folks in real life that I'd known through twitter for a long time."
