Get started with Git and GitHub. Mandatory for enrolled CAS Applied Data Science participants.


About this training
Version Control Systems, Git and collaborative development

Reproducible software engineering, also for research software, requires the usage of version control systems (VCS).
Git is a very powerful and commonly used version control system and GitHub is the most important host for Git repositories.
In this training you will be introduced to the general concepts of version control, Git and collaborative development and how to apply them for yourself or your unit.

This is a mandatory course for the CAS ADS Module 4.
