GaRoot originated from a very brief conversation between our lead developer and his 9 year old son in year 2019. That conversation lead to another one and so on, GaRoot in essence is the result of those initial discussions between them. Both of them designed the application together including screens, basically this is just great as this means that even a 9 year old can gamify a quiz with ease. GaRoot has evolved now and is served from 3 locations, Australia, US and Europe. Let's find out a bit more.
