Get Git: Introduction to Version Control with Git and GitHub

Do you have files like final.txt, final_revised.txt, final_revised2.txt, final_revised2_revised.txt? Version control WILL make your life better!

Git is a free version control system originally developed for coordinating huge software development projects. However, Git is also great for personal uses such as organizing the code for your research project or the drafts and notes for writing an article. Pair Git with free hosting from Github and you have a powerful platform for managing your code and writing while collaborating and sharing with others.

This workshop video series will get you started with version control by introducing the basic Git workflow and commands, and will cover Github features for collaboration, project management, and sharing. Members of the university community from all disciplines are encouraged to attend as Github has diverse applications from managing code and technical documentation, to collaborative writing of lessons and articles, to setting up free blogs and websites. We will introduce Git on the command line and the Github web interface.

This session is a pre-recorded video "release" date. If you register, you will be sent a link to the video, contact information for the instructor to ask questions, and a Q&A session invitation. The video can be viewed at any time after the release--you do not need to show up during this event time!
