CIVICA RESEARCH – Introduction to Git & GitHub: Track changes in your Social Science Research
March 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:50 pm
Introduction to Git & GitHub: Track changes in your Social Science Research
Whether you are swamped among multiple revisions of your work or you wish to be more effective and efficient in keeping track of changes in your research (textual documents, code and data), the Git revision system and its on-line component Github will certainly help you in the process. Please join us in this session on Git and Github, where the basis of the two systems will be introduced by means of practical examples. You will be able to complete the basic steps to set up Git on your computer during the course, or reproduce them afterwards. Be advised that most of the steps presented are on the command-line and within a Unix/Linux/MacOS environment, but all of them can be easily reproduced also on Windows with a few adjustments.
If you find yourself comfortable we advise to install git on your computer ahead of the training session, but it is not strictly necessary.
