Intro to Git and GitHub

In this session, you will learn how to use Git as a protocol for managing and versioning your files. Git allows you to keep track of changes at significant points, and revert changes to previous versions if you need to. We will also learn about GitHub, which is a platform for sharing, versioning, and managing your research projects. GitHub is typically used to publish code, but it can also be used to manage data, write documentation, and share other research materials. In this session, we will learn about GitHub as a platform for collaboratively managing and editing files, keeping track of versions of documents and code, and suggesting improvements to the work of your colleagues. We will explore some examples that show GitHub’s potential for changing how we think about research.

An excellent introduction to using Git and Github helmed by Sarah Stanley. It provided a gentle introduction to the command-line as well. I personally was familiar with a good deal of the content of the presentation, but I learned most of it on my own and it was helpful to see my independent work validated and reinforced. There was also some more advanced features of using Git and GitHub that I was not familiar with that I was able to benefit from. I wish I could have taken this when I was learning Git on my own! A very helpful and productive workshop.

Sarah was very knowledgeable on the topic, explained well, and took time to attend to the group.
