Software Carpentry - Introduction to Version Control with Git (Melbourne Campus)
Thursday, 15 June 2017 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm (AEST)
A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services.This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.
ABOUT THE SESSION:
Have you mistakenly overwritten programs or data and want to learn techniques to avoid repeating the loss?
Version control systems are one of the most powerful tools available for avoiding data loss and enabling
reproducible research. Our trainers are there to answer all your questions while you gain hands on experience in using Git, one of the most popular version control systems available.
Join us for this workshop where we cover the fundamentals of version control using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).
You'll learn how to:
● keep versions of data, scripts, and other files
● examine commit logs to find which files were changed when
● restore earlier versions of files
● compare changes between versions of a file
● push your versioned files to a remote location, for backup and to facilitate collaboration
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Researchers and PhD students.
This course assumes basic familiarity with the Bash command line environment found on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like environments. Register for the Introduction to Unix course to get up to speed quickly.
