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. While the learning curve can be steep, 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).
