This hybrid asynchronous/synchronous workshop will cover the fundamentals of using version control for reproducible research. Topics covered will include installing the Git versioning control software locally, initiating a local Git repository, managing file versions, basic branching and merging, and time permitting intermediate topics including working with remote repositories and resolving conflicts.
At the end of this workshop learners should be able to create new repos and begin using Git for version control of their individual projects.

PREREQUISITES & TARGET LEARNERS
The workshop is suitable for participants with little to no previous Git experience. Familiarity with Unix command line is plus but not required. All participants will need a computer on which they have administrative rights and are able to install software, and should have the latest version of Zoom installed.
While the course will not explicitly cover using the cloud-based GitHub platform, it is recommended that learners setup a free GitHub account to continue their learning and application post-workshop. Students can also request a GitHub student developer pack, which allows for unlimited free private repositories.
