Practical Perforce

leave a comment »

In What does Microsoft use for source control ? I mentioned that Microsoft uses a version of Perforce for its internal projects. Perforce’s licensing allows it its product to be used at no cost for up to two users:

You may use software downloaded from Perforce for any purpose you want and for as long as you like, provided no modifications are made to the software. The Perforce Server supports only two users and five client workspaces unless used with a Perforce License.

This makes it ideal for use at home for private projects. If you do this then you might want to buy a copy of Practical Perforce by Laura Wingerd which provides a good introduction to Perforce. Wingerd is VP of Product Technology at Perforce and also contributed a chapter to Beautiful Code.
