Last Friday saw the end of MERGE 2014. Three days of customer presentations, product deep-dives and networking ended with Perforce executives at the firing line. Don’t worry. They’re still alive and well – they just answered questions from the audience about Perforce Streams, our academic outreach program, writing custom tools, and of course, what was our CEO’s favorite beer at MERGE (A: $2 PBR)!

Perforce is aware of recent reports on vulnerabilities in 'bash' that allow an attacker to utilize environment variables to execute arbitrary commands on vulnerable systems under specific conditions.
We are not aware of any specific vulnerabilities in Perforce software. However, it is possible that custom trigger scripts or other third-party extensions could be impacted. We are continuing to test for any vulnerabilities in Perforce's use of bash, and we will make an immediate announcement if we find any.Posted In:

At PuppetConf, I saw Kate Matsudaira, Founder and CEO of Popforms, present a session called “Trust Me.” It was one of those rare sessions that included both awesome slides and awesome narrative.Posted In:

Pixar explained at MERGE 2014 how they manage large assets using Templar, a proprietary asset management system built to handle all their studio data and metadata. It’s used for feature films, shorts, and all other projects because it manages artwork, scripts, movie frames, simulation details, project management data—everything Pixar needs.

How to choose? Last Thursday, MERGE 2014 had concurrent sessions which made it hard to choose which to attend. There was something for everyone with topics like automated testing, product technical deep dives, and multi-site implementations.
