Introduction to Version Control

This course will introduce users to a version-control system called ‘Git’. If you have ever overwritten valuable work or wanted to collaborate with other researchers more effectively (no more emailing code snippets around!), then version control is for you. Version control allows users to track changes in their work over time, keep track of new versions, and collaborate effectively with other users on the same documents at the same time. This applies both to code and to other documents such as written documents. Users will learn how to use Git on a local desktop computer, and then how to use the most popular Git hosting website, GitHub. This is an introductory course, suitable for all users.
