Description

Git and GitHub: Introduction

A version control system is a useful tool that keeps track of changes to files, including code and text documents. These systems are also crucial for collaborating with other people and merging changes while you work on the same files. Git is a popular modern version control system that is widely used, free, extremely fast and very capable. GitHub is a hosting service for git and a platform for collaboration. Come learn the basics of using git and GitHub.

Things you’ll learn in this workshop:

  • What version control is and when to use it
  • Using git from the command line
  • Sharing files via GitHub


Prerequisites: Familiarity with the command line at an introductory level: specifically an understanding of how to navigate your computer’s file system (cd), the ability to locate files from the command line (cd, ls), and the ability to edit text files (using a text editor such as vi). See parts 1-3 of http://swcarpentry.github.io/shell-novice/ or attend an introduction to command line workshop: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/74733777741.
