Event description

Description

Your trainer for this workshop is Tim Rice, Research Community Coordinator from Research Platforms Services, The University of Melbourne. Bring your own Laptop.

This workshop is being held on Tuesday 27th June from 10am - 3pm

About this workshop:

Git is a system for managing snapshots of plain text projects. It is widely used in industry and academia for distributed collaboration amongst programmers. It is also useful to individuals who want to manage and back up plain text projects across multiple devices. GitHub is a popular website for hosting projects that use Git.

This workshop will provide a gentle introduction to Git and GitHub aimed at a general audience. Since Git is most often used in a text-based environment, we will also cover some simple use of the Unix command line. The goal of the workshop is that you will attain some idea of what Git is and how to begin using it.

This workshop will require a device with internet, such as a laptop that can connect to either UniWireless or EduRoam. You will also need software for editing plain text files and for using Git. Instructions for software installation are available at https://resbaz.github.io/intro-git-workshop

This event is bought to you by Research Platforms Services.

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in the Eastern Resource Centre, Room 329, Level 3 ( Building # 171) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
