What's with all the Git Questions?

Git at Scale
Version Control

“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!” —Monty Python

Lately we have spent a lot of time here considering ways to give users the power of Perforce’s enterprise version management while allowing them the level of customizability that they desire. What we’ve realized is that developers love many of the freedoms enjoyed by distributed version control while admins tend to like the structure surrounding a centralized model. To that end we have been working hard at providing both! Some of our recent work can be seen in our git development and our commitment to continue that work so that developers can use a client of their choosing and still get the power of Perforce on the back end.

Over the next couple of weeks our Twitter stream will start sharing some of the questions that we have been pondering to see what our community might make of them. We would love to compare notes with you. Our hope is that our community might enjoy the “peanut butter cup” as much as we do.

Feel free to follow @Perforce on Twitter and share your thoughts with us over the next couple of weeks as we present some of the interesting quandries that our development teams have been chewing on.
