Version Control

The Professional Development Opportunities program aims to offer training for Astroparticle physics community members, such as yourself, to bolster your skill sets while also bringing together different groups within our community. We are excited to kickstart training with the first of a three-part series on version control. 

Science is always about reproducibility and is continually becoming more collaboration-focused. But how can we effectively store past and present versions of files, manuscripts, software, plotting scripts etc. while also allowing multiple members of a collaboration to simultaneously work together on these files? The answer is: version control.

Version control is now required by all aspects of scientific research, manuscript writing, and software development, and so if you are not familiar with it, or are a bit rusty, then this Professional Development Opportunities session is for you! Over three sessions, Dr. Mark Richardson will use the Software Carpentry workshop on Version Control, along with his experiences, to give an in-depth overview of using version control (specifically the software git) in your own professional work.

Version Control pt. 1 – November 3, 2021 – 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm 

Discover how you can implement a new git repository, understand file history, track changes and work collaboratively on manuscripts and software.
