Why Academics <3 GitHub
November 1, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
While academic work can certainly be a solitary affair, much of our work is collaborative in nature. Sane solutions to collaborating on computers do exist. You might have already used Google Docs to collaborate on a paper or a presentation. In fact, collaboration tools can actually can help us in our independent efforts too. If you ever have lost a night of sleep after deleting a section of a paper only to later realize you actually could have still used, then you know the hell that is controlling versions of a document (or code source). This workshop will introduce participants to GitHub: a set of tools that helps solve the problems of controlling versions of files and collaborating on projects where multiple individuals might be editing the same file at the same time. We will cover the basics of working with Git repositories, the issue tracking and project management tools available on GitHub, AND create a website on GitHub. All in under 2 hours. Satisfaction guaranteed. No refunds, only store credit.
