Introducing: Advanced Training for Perforce Administrators

One of the things I love about my job is hearing our Professional Services consultants talk effusively about new product features every time they are released. “A build farm replica is just what the doctor ordered to overcome a slow WAN bottleneck!” they declare. Or…”I can think of really creative check-in policies that can be instituted with P4Broker!” Some of that enthusiasm also spills into the training classes that they teach, often times extending classes beyond their stipulated duration. That’s when it occurred to us that it is about time that we crafted a new, separate course geared towards some of the more advanced features that are now to be found in the Perforce server.

Hence, I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new one-day classroom training course for Perforce administrators that covers several advanced topics such as:

  • P4Broker: it is now out of the covers, so you can now use it as your middleware of choice for Perforce traffic re-direction, or as a building block for automated failover
  • Replication: for your disaster recovery strategy, or offloading processing from an over-worked central server, or for implementing distributed development across multiple continents
  • Security: SSL is here!
  • Tools: Perfmerge, Perfsplit, P4Migrate
  • Scripting automated tasks using APIs and derived APIs

So if your busy schedule has kept you on the sidelines, this one-day course will quickly bring you up to speed on latest product features and implementation strategies, taught by the same effusive consultants. More information about the course can be found here. You can register for either online instructor led training course (taught as two half-days), or a day-long public classroom training course.
