Merge 2013: Perforce the Plentiful Platform
A version control system is only as good as your ability to make use of it. It needs to be at your fingertips wherever you are creating or retrieving content. That is why at Perforce we have put a lot of energy over the years into integrating with your development tools, your art tools, and even your operating system. However at the end of the day there are sundry site specific tools and processes that we cannot address since our team of engineers is not behind your firewall.
Since we can’t be there, the next best thing is to make it as easy as possible for you to build your own tools and integrations. At my Merge 2013 talk I'll be giving a grand tour of the Perforce platform. I’ll review the interesting data available to you in Perforce, the tools and APIs at your disposal, the integration points with the Perforce server and clients, and mechanisms in Perforce for storing data that you might not be familiar with. At the end of this overview you will have a much better of understanding of the myriad ways you can build on top of the Perforce versioning engine.
Merge 2013 is fast approaching, so register now! I’m looking forward to talking with you all about the tools & processes you’re building on top of Perforce.
