This one is for you, DevOps engineers:
One of the Helix Versioning Engine’s (P4D) strengths is that it knows exactly what version of every file you have synced to your desktop. This granularity at the file level means that calculating the latest revision of a file a user might need is very fast.
The information for all client workspaces is stored in a single “havelist” database table. This table is usually the largest amount of meta-data tracked in your repository (although in the 2015.1 P4D release we reduced its size by about 30%).

The term “door buster” translates well to information technology systems that get stressed heavily on big online sales days such as Black Friday.
In IT terms, door busting could be any manner of system failures that may occur, for example, as system transaction levels reach new peaks. Many failures are recoverable, but only if your team is ready and reacts well in high-stress situations.

Released last month, GitSwarm offers users a web interface to collaborate on projects using a Git-based workflow while automatically mirroring their work in Helix Enterprise. This gives developers the speed and flexibility they need without sacrificing the scalability and security that companies around the world have come to depend upon.
If you’ve yet to take the plunge with GitSwarm, we’ve created a tutorial video to help you get started.

Robert Brackenridge and Finn Staber, leaders in the Austin GameDev community, have a vision: to make Austin the mecca of the $100B gaming industry. After hearing about the Unity event we hosted at PopCap Games in Seattle last spring, they reached out to us to see if we were interested in working with them.
