Git and GitHub

Git and GitHub

This workshop teaches how to use git for version control of source code, and introduces the platform GitHub. You will learn the processes of working together on the same code base, and how to publish your code on GitHub.

When writing code, you often find yourself in the situation where you want to restore a previous version of your code. That’s what git is for. It’s even more valuable if you are working together with someone else on the same code base. With git you can use commits and branches for solving these problems.

Then there is GitHub—a platform where you can store your code and use git for version control. GitHub also provides something called Pull Requests: a request whith which you can ask your team mate to review your changes in the code before it gets merged into the shared code base. This workshop will show you the processes for collaborative work with GitHub and code reviews.

If there is enough time left, we can also have a look at how open source projects are published on GitHub, or how you can use GitHub Pages for publishing your website really quickly and easily.


The goal of this workshop is to understand the basics of git, and learn the processes for collaborative work on a shared code base with GitHub.
