It's well understood how critical version control is for code. However, its importance to DevOps isn't always recognized. The 2014 DevOps Survey of Practice shows that one of the key predictors of DevOps success is putting all production environment artifacts into version control.

    In this webinar, Gene Kim will discuss these survey findings and will share woeful tales of artifact management gone wrong! Gene will also share examples of how high-performing DevOps organizations are sustaining high throughput of deployments, while preserving world-class reliability and stability.

    Featured Speaker: Gene Kim, DevOps Researcher & Author

    Gene Kim is co-author of "The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win", and he is hosting the DevOps Enterprise Summit, a three-day conference, assembling leaders of large, complex organization who are adopting DevOps are sharing their transformation stories from GE Energy, Macy's, Disney, Blackboard, Ticketmaster/LiveNation, Barclays Capital, US Department of Homeland Security, UK.gov , Nordstrom, Capital One, Raytheon and more.

    The level of sophistication in automobiles is skyrocketing. And the number of critical digital assets involved is not limited to software - firmware, maps, manuals, and entertainment objects all represent important product components that must be managed effectively for high quality and standards compliance. Market demands require smaller development cycles, continuous integration and incremental feature releases while still maintaining compliance with the 26262 automotive standards.

    Experts in agile digital asset management discuss problems, options, solutions, and examples of agile car development and utilizing digital asset management techniques across a large range of digital objects to achieve agility in the development cycle while maintaining quality and compliance.

    Rebasing is a contentious issue in the Git community. Advocates consider it essential to remove pesky, intermediate commits, while opponents cry foul at its tendency toward overuse, and destruction of history.

    This DevTalk presents both sides of the issue and suggests a re-thinking of history itself as a first-order work product. Join John Williston, technical product manager and git expert, as he discusses:

    • What rebasing is and how it typically comes into play
    • The unpleasant side effects of its overuse
    • A better way to look at it (as a tool for making history a first-order work product)

    Games depend on contributions from many different team members who each have their own tools and workflows. The challenge is to bring all these people and their good work together to create high quality releases. This session will be ideal for programmers, artists, designers, audio engineers, project managers and anyone else involved in the release of a game. We'll be looking at how best practices and modern tools can be used to achieve quality collaboration across the whole team.


    Certainly great tools for working with Perforce can be found scattered about the web, but in January we opened a one stop warehouse for all your Perforce tool needs: the Perforce Workshop.

    Join Matt Attaway, Director of Community Development, for a tour of the Workshop as well as a number of the tools hosted there. We'll also talk about our efforts to open source more parts of Perforce and our open source roadmap.
