What is it like attending a LeadDev conference?

"This was my fourth time attending LeadDev. The things my co-workers and I have learned over the years at 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."

"The content was great, with awesome speakers. I loved the setup in tables that allowed for discussions. The exercises were very interesting, and having a handbook with everything prepared inside to follow the conference made the day very smooth and productive."

"I enjoyed the focus strictly on high-level individual contributors, and the ability to talk to and interact with other high-level ICs from other companies. I have no idea how I'm going to summarize all this to my coworkers."
