    At Kinesthetic Games, we’re a good example of an indie studio that has built version control into the core of everything we do. We’re currently hard at work developing Kung Fu Superstar, which aims to be both a compelling video game and a self-improvement tool, teaching people high quality martial arts.

    At Perforce, we don’t just preach Continuous Delivery, we practice it. In our latest webinar, Laurette Cisneros, our Engineering Tools Manager, talked about the challenges of implementing Continuous Delivery with codebases of different ages and sizes for both SaaS and on-premise products.

    She shared lessons learned at the start of our journey to automation, including how we convinced the skeptics and determined the right route and the hurdles we encountered along the way. She gave tips for getting started in your organization and answered a number of great questions from our online audience (see below).

    This is part of a blog series designed to explore the stories of our Women in Tech at Perforce. It's been fun and inspiring talking to each one of these women. As they share where they've been and how they came to where they are now, it is my hope that others will be encouraged and inspired too. - See more at: https://extranet-dev.perforce.com/blog/141017/p4-tech-women-beyond-unix-short-skirts#sthash.hkEBAT81.dpuf

    Git Fusion 2015.1 is now available. Below are some of the new features added in this release.

    Background Push

    Back in 2013 when we added HTTPS support, we had to jump through some process management hoops to make sure that a Git push, once started, ran to completion even if the Git client disconnected. The code that completed the push in a background process has been cleaned up and merged into both HTTPS and SSH.
