    DevOps Done Right Webinar with Gene Kim

    DevOps Webinar with Gene Kim

    If you have ever been tasked with figuring out how to deal with large sets of files or large binaries in a version control system, you’ve probably had problems with performance, reliability and scalability. While there are workarounds that can address some of these issues, the workarounds introduce their own complexity that can be difficult to implement and support.

    Wendy focusing on lights.

    I love stories. Each one of us has one to tell. This is the start of a blog series designed to explore the stories of our own Women in Tech at Perforce. It's been fun and inspiring talking to each one of these women. As they share where they've been and how they came to where they are now, it is my hope that others will be encouraged and inspired too.

    Perforce P4V new look

    We’re excited to announce that we’ve refreshed the UI of our flagship visual client, P4V. Not only did we update more than 200 icons, we also stripped the UI of gradients, shadows and color (where it isn’t meaningful) to make P4V look and feel lighter and cleaner. The user experience is also improved with significantly faster rendering. Don’t worry, though, we preserved P4V’s functionality so these improvements to the UI come at no cost to your productivity. Perforce developers and beta customers alike told us they were able to upgrade without any disruption to their workflow.

    Build engineers need a pristine state of their source material. This particularly means not having any artifacts such as object files or class files leftover from a previous build in the build workspace.

    There are several ways to achieve this in Perforce:

    • Create a new workspace for each build
    • Reuse the workspace by removing all files and forcing a sync, optionally skipping the have-list update for more speed (using the –p option)

    The Perforce Tutorial Video Library has been completely redesigned and now includes all of the video content previously available only in the Perforce eLearning courses. This will be the central location for all “how-to” video content and a valuable resource for anyone who needs to get up-to-speed quickly.
