Resilient Management book cover

Lara Hogan book signing

We're excited to host a signing of Lara's must-read management book, Resilient Management, on November 8!

"Resilient Management is an excellent investment whether you’re new to managing or an experienced hand." - Meri Williams (Conference chair & co-curator). 

The deadline to order your copy directly to the conference has passed. If you've already bought the book, bring it with you to be signed!

Free pre-conference meetup

We're kicking off this year's conference in style with a free meetup on November 7. Join us for lightning talks, insights on surviving code reviews & interviews, and to make new connections before the conference. RSVP here.

Pre-conference workshops

As a technical leader, how do you effectively communicate your ideas to influence decisions and get buy-in from colleagues? Our workshops on November 7 will give you the tools and frameworks to help you succeed. Spaces are limited so register early so you don't miss out: Building Alignment, Leadership through Visibility, and Demystifying Management.


Thank you to our fantastic partners for their support to help the conference possible.
