Perforce to Git migration

Perforce and Git are two different types of source control systems that help developers track and manage changes to software code. Perforce is a centralized system that requires a connection to a server to access the code history, while Git is a distributed system that allows each developer to have a copy of the code base on their local machine.

Migrating from Perforce to Git can offer several benefits, such as faster performance, more flexible workflows, and better collaboration. However, migrating from Perforce to Git also involves some challenges, such as preserving the history of the code, mapping users and permissions, handling large binary files, and managing complex dependencies. In this article, we will explore some of the reasons, methods, and best practices for migrating from Perforce to Git.
