Zach has been using Perforce since 1999 as a developer at Edmunds.com, his current employer. He has since worn many different hats, but the most prominant has been to be the in-house Perforce expert, a responsibility that he has carried with him to his current position as a Unix Systems Administrator.
Zach's formal introduction to IT was in 1991, where he started his first job as a PBX technician for Phoenix Tel-Data, in Corpus Christi, TX. He has since worked as a web developer, programmer, UNIX/VAX/Windows/Netware system administrator, content manager and digital artist for such employers as: Sam Houston State University, Perot Systems, and the University of California at Los Angeles. He has also done freelance work in the past for Obscurasite.com and Aquent Partners in a variety of roles.
Helke comes from an artistic background, growing up in a theater family, and has an extensive background in theater, photography, and fiction and non-fiction writing. He holds a degree from Sam Houston State in photography (digital imaging emphasis) and another in history (emphasis in modern Israel) and is a member of Phi Alpha Theta History Honors Society. He is currently compiling a book of his poems, and is considering using source control to track the many changes he makes to his creative works.
He is always happy to talk about Perforce or SCM in general, especially when it comes to using Perforce for content management.
