Trip Report: CppCon 2017

Just two weeks ago, we were at CppCon! Time flies, and we wanted to take some time to give a trip report while the show is still fresh in our minds. CppCon is the annual week long gathering for the entire C++ community, and it’s filled with inspiring talks, industry leaders, and fantastic events. This was our second year at the show, and the growth in just one year was unbelievable. There were more attendees, speakers, and exhibitors than ever before. CppCon is growing fast. This was also our biggest conference presence to date. We sent a team of seven to attend the conference, hosted an open session, and made sure to have as engaging a booth as possible.    Read More

How Backtrace Fit into the Ecosystem of NodeSummit

This July, Backtrace was eager to head west to San Francisco as a first-time sponsor and exhibitor at NodeSummit. With somewhere between 800 and 1000 attendees, NodeSummit is the largest conference focused exclusively on Node.js, and is referred to as, “The Ecosystem of Node.” Knowing that in an ecosystem, each organism has its own niche or role to play, it was important that we knew what ours was. As Backtrace now offers turn-key crash management for the Electron App, we were specifically looking to engage and interact with the Electron developers at NodeSummit.

Stuck on Glue (Con 2017)

This May, the Backtrace team traveled to Broomfield, CO to attend GlueCon 2017 at the Omni Interlocken Resort. We attended both to sponsor the conference and to support our Co-founder/CTO, Samy Al Bahra, who was invited as a speaker. It was our first time attending and the team didn’t quite know what to expect; however, to those who have attended, it should come as no surprise that GlueCon ended up being an excellent experience. The slogan, “Glue is a case study in what a conference should be” is a spot on analysis.   Read More

GDC: God Mode for Developers

In stark contrast to a rather snowy March in NYC, we experienced beautiful weather during our visit to San Francisco for GDC 2017. We designed a booth stocked with old video game references, fun puzzle giveaways, chocolate gold coins to sustain visitors throughout the day, and a Nintendo Switch raffle. Most importantly, four of us from Backtrace attended and were eager to meet game developers to chat about debugging challenges.
