This workshop will introduce github and some of its uses in statistical contexts. Github is a powerful tool for storing code online to publicly share or to collaborate on. In this workshop, we will cover use cases for github for sharing data and/or code, and the tools for using github in a statistics context. No previous knowledge of github or any version control system will be assumed.Topics covered will include:
- Creating/cloning repositories
- Version control
If you intend to follow along with the examples, you should create an account on github.com before the workshop, and download the program gitkraken from https://www.gitkraken.com.
