Software Carpentry: Introduction to Version Control with Git

Fri, 01/22/2021 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

This event is an example-driven morning workshop on January 22, 2021 for Introduction to version control with Git. Teams are not the only ones to benefit from version control: lone researchers can benefit immensely. Keeping a record of what was changed, when, and why is extremely useful for all researchers if they ever need to come back to the project later on (e.g., a year later, when memory has faded).

This workshop builds on the skills presented in a Bash workshop offered on Jan 21, 2020. Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants are recommended to use a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine, not a Chromebook or tablet. Though tablets are good for second screens. You should also be sure to have admin privileges on your device.

For this workshop, we will be working with Github, so learners should also have or create an account before the workshop. 

Prerequisite: Command-line programming with Bash-shell (either previous experience or attend the January 21st workshop)

This event runs on Friday, January 22, 2020 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
