    In the Spring of 2012, we had a vision to build a community-based girls sports program that focuses on teaching young girls the emotional and physical skills necessary to succeed in a Title IV level competitive sports environment and in life. We knew that with so many budget cuts to school and town-sponsored programs, it was going to take a strong vision and the help of many groups to successfully kick off this program.

    The Perforce Foundation stepped onto the court to help build our program.

    security lockFrom time to time, people ask me how replica servers affect the security of their Perforce installation.

    The good news is that, properly deployed and configured, a replica server is just as secure as your main Perforce server.

    It's usually the case that your Perforce server is the most important and valuable server in your entire organization: after all, this is where you are storing everything that you have developed, and everything that your team values! So I'm pleased that you are thinking about security and wondering how replica servers fit into your security process.

    swarm bee

    If you follow our blog you've likely heard a few times now about our new code collaboration tool called Swarm, but you may not have had a chance to dive in to see what it's all about. Conveniently we have a few different avenues for you to explore Swarm, depending on your time and media preferences.

    I have 30 minutes and want to see the whole enchilada.

    Just last week I presented an Intro to Swarm webinar. It covers why we created Swarm, gives a demo of our live Public Depot installation, and ends with a Q&A with the developers. It will give you a solid introduction to Swarm.

    P4Eclipse, Perforce’s plug-in for the Eclipse IDE, just shipped the 2013.1 version. Most importantly this release offers compatibility with Eclipse 4.3 and Mylyn 3.9 for all those early adopters out there.

    The P4Eclipse team added a host of other useful features and bug fixes, including support for task streams and the shelving improvements in the latest core Perforce release.

    Perforce’s plug-in for Visual Studio (P4VS) shipped another great release this month. This is our 4th release since the first GA just about a year ago. As one of the developers on the product, I’m happy to see it continue to ship so frequently.
