Who we are

We are the developers of Plastic SCM, a full version control stack (not a Git variant). We work on the strongest branching and merging you can find, and a core that doesn't cringe with huge binaries and repos. We also develop the GUIs, mergetools and everything needed to give you the full version control stack.

If you want to give it a try, download it from here.

We also code SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.

Faster than Perforce!!

Perforce is the fastest SCM on the market. Or at least it was... We made a couple of performance tests last Friday with very good results for our system.
We tested with a 183Mb repository containing 2426 items on it.
Our system stores revisions for both files and directories.
Plastic (our SCM) needed about 52 seconds to perform a forced update (everything gets copied) while Perforce took 58 seconds to do the same.
We took times repeteadly, with almost identical results (a difference of one second between measures).
By the way Perforce is still the fastest, because we are only able to beat it doing updates... Adding files it is much much faster, and checking in and out too. But we are getting closer... :-P

I'm the CTO and Founder at Códice.
I've been leading Plastic SCM since 2005. My passion is helping teams work better through version control.
I had the opportunity to see teams from many different industries at work while I helped them improving their version control practices.
I really enjoy teaching (I've been a University professor for 6+ years) and sharing my experience in talks and articles.
And I love simple code. You can reach me at @psluaces.
