The aim of this course is to demonstrate to and familiarize the workshop participants with version control systems, specifically Git. Both introductory and more advanced topics will be covered. Research code is often developed in a collaborative setting, and we will discuss tools and workflows which facilitate this process. However, most of the content is also relevant to a single developer.
Hands-on informal and interactive one-day event with type-along type of presentations, live coding and demos. Short tutorials alternate with practical exercises.
Na332, Naturvetarhuset, Universitetsvägen, Umeå.
09:00 to 17:00
Free of charge.
If you are writing code that is used in research, then this course is for you. If you develop research code and you know all the tools already, join us as a helper! It's fun, and you always learn something new about a subject by teaching it.
This is not a course about a specific programming language or the Linux/Unix terminal shell. We assume that you are familiar with the programming language that you use in your work and research. We try to keep the course as language-independent as possible but we will show some basic code examples in Python.
