Matthew Rice, starnix inc.


starnix inc. provides programming and network consulting and training services (notably, in this case, Perforce training). One of the most critical tools in any software project is a high quality SCM product. We have experience with Perforce, RCS, SCCS, ClearCase, CVS and Visual SourceSafe. However, we only support Perforce and CVS.

Our first encounter with Perforce was during an evaluation of Windows SCM products in 1996. Perforce was the only product that had Linux and Solaris clients. Since then, we have been advocating Perforce to clients seeking SCM solutions. Internally, we use Perforce to maintain source code, project documents, web content and tests.

We also assist our clients in every aspect of software product development from the initial planning and requirements development to testing, final release and ongoing support.
