Here's a chance for some face time with a Perforce engineer. We're sending a few off the Island for a few days. We're even buying the beer!Posted In:

I recently had the honor of participating in the Version Control episode of #c9d9, the Continuous Delivery (CD) 'Continuous Discussion' series hosted by Electric Cloud. Along with panelists from Macy's, GoMidjets, Sonatype and Electric Cloud, we asked four questions about version control and CD:
1. Who should use/what should be in version control?
2. How does version control affect your CD pipeline?
3. How will version control evolve?
4. What are your version control horror stories?Posted In:

Remember how the simplest thing we did early in this series of blogs was create a local repository? It’s been a while, so to refresh your memory we initialized a server, created a file, reconciled our work, and submitted it.Posted In:

When I started using Git, I immediately came across the problem that I did not know which branch I was currently in. Using Perforce I do not tend to swap branches that often since I can shelve my changes if I need to swap what I am working on, but in Git I easily work in 3 or 4 branches in parallel. Hence my problem of knowing which branch is currently active.Posted In:

Many current security tools (e.g., encryption, network defense and signature-based products) are focused on preventing outsiders from gaining access to sensitive internal file systems and databases. However defending organizations from insider attacks is becoming a growing concern. In a recent study Insider Threat Report from Vormetric, 89% of global senior business managers and IT professionals polled felt that their organizations were now more at risk from an insider attack; 34% felt very or extremely vulnerable.
