    The Perforce motto is "Version Everything". But few people include database code in “everything”. That's why DBmaestro TeamWork™ and Perforce complement and complete each other.

    Working with files and scripts is very different than working with a database. For example, a database is a centralized and shared resource that must be synchronized among the entire team. And database objects have their own syntax for creation and modification. These differences are quite important, and must be carefully considered.

    DevTalk: Avoid Git Bloat and Submodule HellJoin us on Tuesday, November 19th for the latest DevTalk Webinar: "Avoid Git Bloat and Submodule Hell".

    Perforce Git Fusion lets you incrementally break up large Git repositories into small functional repositories. You can break off chunks for different teams and build localized processes around those smaller units, while also maintaining the "big" build. That way, you’ve got a pathway for migrating to a much more Agile delivery system.

    I think 'p4 edit' is by far the most cursed Perforce command on Twitter. Folks coming from Subversion and Git are accustomed to an implicit checkout workflow, and being forced to ask the version control system for permission to change something is grating. Conveniently, Perforce supports implicit checkout as well! Let's take a look.
