An affordable one-day conference for early career developers to learn skills needed for a happy, healthy work life.

Adulting.Dev is a one day conference for professionals developers who have recently started their careers and the managers and team leads who support them. The conference will cover topics across three themes - learning, living and leveling-up. This isn’t your typical tech conference - we're not talking about your technical skills, but everything else needed for a happy, healthy work life.

This year, the conference will focus on the following three areas:

  • Learning: Grow and document your technical skills. We’re not looking for technical talks. Topics will include strategies for learning, recording your growth and how to create space for learning in your role.

  • Living: This topic area is about self-care and mental health. Topics will include how to say no, maintaining a life-work balance and combating imposter syndrome.

  • Leveling Up: Hear how to transition out of junior positions. Topics will include approaching reviews with confidence, asking for a raise and meaningful feedback in a work environment.

As this is our first year running this event since 2019, we'll be slowly sharing information about how to get tickets, or even apply to be a speaker. To respect the health of all of our attendees we'll be requiring everyone to wear masks for the duration of the Conference.
