This lesson introduces version control with Git, which provides researchers with a tool they can use to keep track of what they’ve done and collaborate with other people. Every large software development project relies on version control, and most programmers use it for 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.
Software Carpentry workshops are free, hands-on, events that cover the core computational research skills needed to be productive as an individual scientist or in small research teams. No previous experience is needed and each workshop is taught by experienced researchers who use these tools in their own work.
