Version control is one way to track changes to files on your computer, and is regularly used for project management in collaborative environments. Git is one of the most widely used version control systems in the world. It is useful to both individuals and groups to track changes, manage conflicts in files, and share workflows and resources. In this live demonstration, participants will be introduced to the platforms Git and GitHub, and common functions for version control in Git. You are welcome to follow along on your own device, but it is not a requirement. If you do want to follow along, you must bring your own laptop that can connect to wifi. Instructions on how to install Git and set up your GitHub account will be sent ahead of the demonstration.
