Every year we bring you more than just fantastic talks from our wonderful line-up of speakers.

Practical workshops

In 2018 we're hosting three workshops the day before the conference: 2 days of Be a brilliant people developer and a day of User Story Mapping. Only a limited number of tickets left for those workshops, so if you want to join - reserve your ticket soon!

Speaker office hours

All of our confirmed speakers will be running 30 mins of speaker office hours throughout the conference, this is your chance for Q&A, you can ask questions about their talk or other topics. The sessions will run in the sponsor hall throughout the lunch and coffee breaks (Check out the office hours schedule here). No need to pre-book anything, just drop by for some advice about all things lead developer from true industry experts.

Sponsor prize draws

During the breaks you will have an excellent opportunity to enter all of our sponsor prize draws! They are super exciting, for example Monzo will be giving away Lego's Millennium Falcon, Tower Bridge and Saturn V Rocket as their raffle prize. Would hate to miss that!

    Drinks reception and after after party

    After the talks, you can celebrate the end of Day 1 at the drinks reception with your fellow colleagues. The drinks reception will kick off right after conference close around 5:15pm at the sponsor hall, and will offer music and drinks and another chance to network with some awesome people.

    If you'd like to continue socialising after the drinks reception, we would definitely recommend The Fable not far from the conference venue! View the directions in maps
