Git and GitHub

Description

Git is a powerful version control system allowing to record, access, and restore the history of projects. After setting up remotes on the internet or other network, Git is also a mighty collaboration tool.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Explain what version control is and what the benefits are,
  • Get you started with Git,
  • Use the popular online Git repository hosting site GitHub to introduce a workflow typical of many companies.
