Join Backtrace CTO/Co-Founder, Samy Al Bahra, on Tuesday at 12:30PM for his talk, Debuggers for Modern Applications: Performance and Static Analysis.

Debuggers are one of the most important tools in the engineering arsenal. However, today’s popular symbolic debuggers have evolved little beyond their predecessors of three decades in the area of performance and static analysis. You don’t have to wait tens of seconds or minutes to iterate on your builds with a debugger or bottleneck the debugging process when domain expertise is lacking.

After exploring problems in these areas, the talk examines technical hurdles to building faster debuggers and illuminates our journey in building a modern symbolic debugger that is magnitudes faster than existing debuggers. Finally, with performance improved, viable opportunities for marrying static analysis with symbolic debugging are explored. These techniques are currently being used and deployed in the wild for companies such as Comcast, Oath, AppNexus and more.

What Does Backtrace Do?

We have a lot to say about this (so come talk to use!) but ultimately we strive to improve software quality by transforming crash data into actionable information your team can capture, prioritize, and resolve.




Never miss a crash again with cross-platform capture for all your supported systems. Stop guessing, and know exactly how your project is performing.




Answer the important questions you need to shorten time to identification. We combine automatic symbolication, indexing of attributes, and full queryablity across custom data.




Cut down on time to resolution with automated analysis and intelligent aggregation. Streamline collaboration by integrating with your ticket management, chat, and monitoring tools.

TLDR; Come say hi at one of these places
