GIT Tutorial

Have you ever lost your work on your computer?, Do you have multiple copies of the same file?, Do you work on a collaborative project and want to keep track of authorship changes?

In this tutorial we are going to show the basics of Git version control, a system that records changes to a file or set of files over time so that you can recall specific versions later. Git is a powerful system for managing individual and group projects, including source code and papers. We will introduce everyday Git functionality as well as common workflows for individual, small-group, and community projects. In addition to contributor roles like preparing and revising pull requests, we will also explore integrator roles such as reviewing, merging, and release/branch management, as well as related services. Material useful for the Git tutorial will be available on this dedicated GitHub repository for attendees to download.      

Learn how to do all that and more on our GIT Tutorial, given by Dr. Jed Brown, Assistant Professor in Computer Science, CU Boulder.
