The record breaking crowd at GDC 2015 produced a steady stream of attendees stopping by our booth to talk shop, chat about their current products, and learn about the new Perforce Helix platform, which adds DVCS, Git Management, IP Threat Detection, and a free Cloud Edition to Perforce SCM. When they weren't checking out hot new Virtual Reality devices and platforms, happy folks crowded the aisle during our Happy Hour, and recovered at our Recovery Lounge.

The world of model-based design got a big boost last week with the release of P4SL, our Open Source integration with Mathworks’ flagship products, Simulink, the leading simulation and modeling tool, and MATLAB, the popular numerical computing environment.

Cyber attacks and data breaches of large corporations have increasingly become more common and more frequent. No longer confined to the retail segment, the world’s biggest data breaches (>30,000 records) now touch almost all major industries, including financial services, tech, gaming, government, healthcare, telecoms, military, and media.
