MIGS17: Game Over

It was just over a month ago that 5 members from Backtrace joined together as an unstoppable adventuring party on a quest to attend, exhibit, and engage attendees at MIGS17. They arrived at the Palais des congrès in Montréal, each prepared to face what would be the Final Boss for 2017: Montreal International Game Summit. This conference may have seemed like uncharted territory for us, but the team knew it was our destiny to attend. With the experience received from Games Developer Conference in March, we were prepared to be massively effective while exhibiting at MIGS17.  Read More

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.
