Git? What's that?


Like our first workshop, Git is another important and very useful tool for any experienced software developer. Git is a software versioning system that is designed for flexible and organized developments. It is the preferred platform for documenting changes in code and it's use with GitHub makes for a powerful tool when working on a group project no matter the task.

Fátima Puig, a member of the SSC, led this workshop. She showed how to set up the credentials and create a local git repository as well as how to submit changes and the workflow when making pull requests to other public repositories on GitHub. This was also a fully interactive workshop, and they had the opportunity of using the lab's computers to practice and follow the presentation. Again we thank every member who assisted for their support!

The material given in this workshop has been inspired by material from the software carpentries
