Wiki Version:
Are you working on scripts or code for data analyses, or any other kind of text for that matter, then you likely keep different versions of your files. Perhaps that looks like so: script_v1.R script_v2.R script_FINAL.R script_FINAL_FINAL.R etcetera… In all of these files, you may have lost when you changed what and above all why… Who really keeps a lab journal when they are writing code? If this sounds familiar, you may benefit from version control with Github, a system to keep track of changes and why they were made. In this session I will explain shortly what version control is, how it works, and get you started with GitHub. The presentation from this Open Science Coffee session can be found [here][1]. [1]:
