What is Code Leaders?
As the things we build and the teams and organisations that build them become ever more complex, technical knowledge and capabilities simply aren't enough. Code Leaders is designed for engineering and development leaders, senior developers, lead engineers, engineering managers, CTOs. It doesn't matter so much what your role is called, if you're responsible for building and leading teams, and making strategic decisions about the technologies your company or organisations uses, Code Leaders is designed for you.
Code Leaders takes place over a single, intensive day, and features real world experts addressing key challenges of technology, leadership and developing, maintaining and growing great engineering teams.

I’ve been admiring the Web Directions events for years, and was honored to be part… What a fantastic event!

Out of any conference, Web Directions is far and away our favourite
founder Campaign Monitor
Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over a decade brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.
We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.
We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.
In 2019, we'll be organising Design, Design Leaders, Code and Code Leaders in Melbourne, and Web Directions Summit, and Culture in Sydney
