Universities Rely on Plastic SCM from Codice Software to Train Future Software Engineers


Students Use the Latest Parallel Development Version Control System for Software Development Projects

Boecillo Tech Park, Spain – April 28, 2009- Codice Software, ( the developer of the innovative software configuration management solution Plastic SCM, today announced that more than 400 university students at ten higher education institutions in North America and Europe are using Plastic SCM as their version control and source code management solution for software development projects.

An increasing number of university curriculums, including many engineering disciplines, finance and sciences, as well as software engineering, require students to complete software development projects as a part of their education. Undergraduates and graduate students at several leading universities are using Plastic SCM to manage changes to the code they are developing. Since many of these universities are conducting research projects that span several team members and multiple physical locations, the parallel development capability of Plastic SCM allows all the students and researchers access to any part of the code base at any time, without having to wait for another user to check the code back in, and without having to worry about conflicting changes made by another developer.

"Plastic SCM is being used by so many universities because it has a modern user interface, easy to use branch visualization capabilities, and it is one of the only source code management tools that supports distributed, parallel development, which is critical to effective university research” said Pablo Santos, CEO of Codice Software. “In an increasingly global economy, distributed, parallel development is the way nearly all software development will be done going forward. Plastic SCM can support distributed development of very large scale software projects, and we are pleased that so many university graduates will be familiar with distributed development and Plastic SCM,” Mr. Santos went on to say.

Many customers in industries such as telecommunications, finance, insurance, software and game development rely on Plastic SCM to manage their code bases and enable parallel development, which increases the efficiency of development teams, and contributes to higher quality software.
