Perforce Software

Whether you're an indie team of three or a mid-sized studio, building a game today means dealing with expanding dimensions of scale, such as large file sizes and number of assets.

Scalable version control is a necessity for efficient development and global collaboration, but it can be hard for small teams to get up and running. That's why Perforce launched Helix Core Cloud — a Perforce-managed and hosted offering of their industry-leading version control platform, Helix Core.

In this talk, Perforce CTO Brad Hart will introduce Helix Core Cloud and provide a primer on what scalable version control means within the context of digital creation efficiency and the changing landscape of game development.


How Helix Core Cloud works – including which configurations and maintenance are handled by Perforce.

The power and flexibility a turnkey Helix Core deployment offers indies and small teams.

New ways to think about branching to avoid merge conflicts and broken builds.

Intended Audience

This talk is for anyone from individual creators to mid-sized studios.
