P4Eclipse is a great plugin for the Eclipse IDE, and it's probably been our most popular IDE integration since it was introduced. It goes well beyond the normal things you expect out of an IDE integration, like the ability to check out and submit files. It provides language-aware features in the diff and time-lapse view tools, for example, and fully supports Eclipse refactoring operations.

Tony Mowers With Baby Alex
Tony Mowers was born in Toronto, Canada in 1965. He graduated in 1989 from the University of Waterloo, Canada with a degree in Applied Mathematics. From 1989 to present, he has worked as a software architect, team lead, and software engineering team coach. In 1995 he founded his own engineering company in Berkeley, California and now operates it as Alika AG in Switzerland. He is also a member of the EVOCEAN GmbH team. EVOCEAN is Perforce's sales partner in Switzerland.
Have you lived in Switzerland all your life? If not, how did you end up there?
I've been living in Switzerland for about 6 years now. I am a Canadian, born and raised in Canada, but I lived and worked in California for about 10 years. While there, I met my future wife at a sailing club. We married, and then I followed her back to her Swiss homeland.
What prompted your company to partner with Perforce?
Our company, EVOCEAN, believes that there is a good growth opportunity here for Perforce in Switzerland. I used Perforce for several projects back when I worked in California, and I came to think that Perforce is the best enterprise-class version control system in the market. Perforce is not as well-known here as it should be, so I liked the idea of becoming a sales partner and promoting its use.Posted In:

While Perforce has taken the first steps towards transparency and community engagement they are complex problems that continue to challenge and excite those involved. Community ideas may have been slated for development, but that is only the first step at moving the comfort line towards true transparency. Ultimately Perforce would love to have a completely open roadmap, but no company will completely change overnight.Posted In:

The sun glinted on the virgin ice. Christopher Seiwald, founder and president of Perforce, stepped out with a microphone and addressed a crowd that stood around the perimeter of the Little Ice Rink at the corner of Park and Tilden Way. Seiwald began with a a few words describing how Park Street has been a hub for his 15-year-old company, founded in Alameda: "We started out down by South Shore, then moved up Park Street in a couple of buildings, and now we're across the way on Blanding. It's been a dream of ours for a few years to have an ice rink in Alameda. Thanks to the Perforce Foundation we were able to make it possible in record time."
Then Seiwald invited Alameda Mayor Marie Gilmore to join him on to the ice. "We are very fortunate to have one company giving back to the community the way Perforce is. What a way for Perforce to give Alameda a Christmas gift of this Little Ice Rink," said Gilmore.Posted In:

It's possible to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the iPad to make typing easier, but I found the ability to pick up the iPad and do even 30 seconds of coding between other tasks to be seductive in its simplicity. Adding a keyboard makes the iPad into more of a Netbook form-factor, which would have been less novel.
