Intro to Version Control w/ Git + GitHub
This workshop introduces version control using git through GitHub, free and open-source platforms for building projects collaboratively. We’ll learn the basics of git repositories and commits including how to fork a repository on GitHub to your account, clone the repository to your local machine, and point it to the source repository. And we’ll practice GitHub workflows like fetching and merging changes from the source, making changes and commits locally, pushing to GitHub, and making pull requests. The use of GitHub requires a user account so please set yours up before the workshop at github.com. Git and GitHub are available to everyone.
Our policy is that we do not record live workshops in order to encourage robust Q&A. However, you can always find the full workshop materials for all of our workshops at: https://library.virginia.edu/data/training/past-workshops which allows you to work through the material at your own pace. We also encourage you to reach out to the instructor at any time for a one-on-one consult, and for specific or general questions about any of the topics we cover.
