Perforce Swarm, A Developer Platform To Compete With The Likes Of GitHub and Atlassian
The code collaboration market continues to see new entrants, which illustrates the growing power of the enterprise developer. Perforce is the latest entry to the market with Swarm, a collaboration platform for continuous integration and delivery. Before apps ever go into production, all the pieces in the development cycle need to be in place. People work across distant geographies, and their platforms need to be synced. To compete effectively, developers must collaborate on the code they write. With Swarm, Perforce enters a market that literally is starting to see a swarm of competing companies. Swarm is the next step in a new direction for Perforce, originally founded in 1995 as a developer of version control software. The company gave glimpses of its new direction in March when it launched Commons, an open-source document management service, similar to Dropbox or Google Docs. Version control is integral to file storage and sharing services, giving Perforce a natural entry into that sector ...
Windows Phone 8 Reportedly Gained A Notification Center Before Losing It Again
When I buy gadgets off of eBay, I'm lucky if half of them haven't previously been gnawef on by dogs. Meanwhile, this redditor who picked up a second-hand Nokia Lumia 920 from the auction sit seems to have gotten much more than he bargained for -- he's been posting screenshots from the device for the better part of a day, and the thing appears to run a previously unreleased build of Windows Phone 8. The big tip off? Well, there's a handful of UI changes (including the ability to kill apps from the multitasking screen), to say nothing of a slew of curious pre-installed test apps that seem tailor-made for internal development use. Really though, the most notable addition to the device is a notification center, one of the features that's missing from current versions of Windows Phone.

One API To Rule Them All – Segment.io Lets Mobile Developers Send Analytics Data To Dozens Of Services, Without Resubmitting To App Stores
Segment.io, a Y Combinator-backed startup making it easier for developers to integrate APIs from multiple analytics providers into their applications, is today expanding its service to include support for mobile. The company is introducing mobile software development kits for both iOS and Android which will allow developers to toggle on or off 25 different analytics services without resubmitting their app to the various app stores. At launch, Segment.io’s iOS and Android libraries will support sending data to a number of mobile analytics services, including Countly, Mixpanel, Localytics, Flurry, Google Analytics and others. Co-founder Peter Reinhardt explains that the new libraries will give mobile developers flexibility, because they’ll now be able to deploy the Segment.io analytics library just once, then switch or or off the services inside Segment.io that they want to work with. In addition, by proxying the data through Segment.io’s servers, the libraries also provide mobile ...
