“An Introduction to GitHub” Workshop

November 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

If you are interested in best practices for organizing file structures on your computer and collaborating while coding, this workshop may be for you! This introductory, two-hour workshop is designed for beginners who are interested in learning about GitHub; all you need is a computer. GitHub is a version control repository, which means it is built to store your information and keep track of changes. It is often used to upload, save, and disseminate code; multiple contributors can work on a repository at once, which allows for collaboration. This workshop will go over best practices for file structures as well as define and demonstrate the uses of Git, GitHub, version control, and repositories. This workshop will be led by Cara Marta Messina, the NULab Coordinator for the 2018-2019 academic year.

This session will be followed by the “Building a Website with Jekyll and GitHub Pages” workshop offered by Professor Ryan Cordell on November 8, 12 pm – 2 pm in the Digital Scholarship Commons, Snell Library. Participants are welcome to attend either or both events.

Please bring a laptop, if you are able.
