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.
