What's New: e-Learning Taking Perforce by Storm

MERGE User Conference

This post is part of a series. This week is a look at some of the new happenings at Perforce as we lead up to the User Conference in early June.

If any of you are like me, learning new software takes on the "I hope it's intuitive" approach. I generally end up clicking through the program looking for what I need and only searching out help via search engines, forums, and videos if I run up against an obstacle I can't immediately solve. There are plenty of training options out there, but who has time to go sit in a classroom for a week, or even a couple of days?

Thankfully, in a world of 140-characters-or-less thinking, Perforce is aiming to make getting the answers before you start a painless, bite-sized, convenience with new e-learning options. Classroom instruction and interactive workshops will still be available for those who like that format, but the new training is designed to target specific roles or tasks and fit into a busy schedule. Consulting and Training Manager, Tony Vinayak is leading the charge on e-learning and hopes to have even more options in the near future. So, if you are looking to take a crack at fast, centralized, version control, there has never been a better time to smooth that learning curve.

As always, if you have questions as a potential Perforce user (paid or not), current user, or other VCS user looking to integrate, we love to hear from you on Twitter (@Perforce), our forums, or via email to See you out there.
