A taste of what's to come at LeadDev London

The 25 best talks from 650 proposals

We carefully select the talks by reviewing over 650 proposals without knowing who the speakers are. This means we choose the best talks 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

With such a high quality line-up you won't want to miss a thing: just relax and soak up the ideas in the comfortable Barbican theatre.

The track is engaging and dynamic, with a variety of talk lengths, mix of topics, and breaks to keep you focused and energised throughout the day.

Connect with the community

Express your preference for meeting people (or not) with our traffic light badge system.

The networking mixer at the end of day 1 and London meet-up on the night before the event are perfect places to grow your network. 

Chat with our speakers in office hours

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

  • Live captioning of all talks
  • Prayer room
  • 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.

Every ticket includes a digital pass with access to the live stream, incase you can't stay for all of the event - plus exclusive access to the on demand talk recordings for the 6 months before they're made public.
