Software Engineering Leadership Communities

I receive a number of requests through this blog, in my workshops and through Level Up, a curated newsletter for leaders in tech about connecting with other technical leaders. I see a lot of value in connecting with people in a similar, or slightly different situation for co-mentoring opportunities and to be exposed to different approaches or people. I also recognise that building and managing an inclusive community takes a lot of effort.

A community offers engineering leaders support

Instead of trying to build and manage another community I thought it would be useful to provide a curated list of engineering and technical leadership communities for others. Since this is a curated list, I’ve tried to include communities which:

  • Focus on engineering leadership or technical leadership roles;
  • Have measures in place to build an inclusive community such as having a Code of Conduct and a set of moderators or a process in place to enforce the Code of Conduct; and
  • Are free to join (no membership fees)
