This Software Carpentry workshop provides an introduction to using git and version control to record changes to code and data

About this event

Version control is the lab notebook of the digital world: it’s what professionals use to keep track of what they’ve done and to collaborate with other people. Every large software development project relies on it, and most programmers use it for their small jobs as well. And it isn’t just for software: books, papers, small data sets, and anything that changes over time or needs to be shared can and should be stored in a version control system.

N.B. Prior experience with the Unix/Linux command line interface is required for this workshop. Please do not register unless you have this experience.


What should I bring into the event?

This is an online workshop, so you will need to provide your own computer with a Unix-style application installed and have access to a reliable internet connection sufficient for video conferencing. A second monitor is highly recommended.

What prior experience do I need?

You will need to be familiar with using the Unix command line interface

Who should attend?

Any researcher who is writing software code. Version control and git can also be useful for any situation where recording a history of changes to text data is important.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

You can email

What's the cancellation policy?

Cancellations are accepted up to 48h before the start of the workshop. If you do not join on the day without having cancelled beforehand, you may be blocked from attending any future QCIF training workshops.
