Version Control with GIT Workshop

Version control is the lab notebook of the digital world: it’s what professionals use to keep track of what they’ve done and to collaborate with other people. Every large software development project relies on it, and most programmers use it for their small jobs as well. And it isn’t just for software: books, papers, small data sets, and anything that changes over time or needs to be shared can and should be stored in a version control system. This Carpentry based workshop will cover setting up Git, tracking changes, and collaborating with others. The total amount of participation time is approximately 3 hours. Registered participants will receive invites to the Canvas workshop before the start of the workshop on February 8th.

MAY 2021



Unix Workshop

The Unix shell has been around longer than most of its users have been alive. It has survived so long because it’s a powerful tool that allows people to do complex things with just a few keystrokes. More importantly, it helps them combine existing programs in new ways and automate repetitive tasks so they aren’t typing the same things over and over again. There is an option to receive an Alternative Digital Credential for this workshop by completing assignments. This Carpentry based workshop will cover files and directories, pipes, filters, loops, and shell scripts. The total amount of participation time is approximately 4 hours. Registered participants will receive invites to the Canvas workshop before the May 3rd start date.
