**This event is part of a larger series.**
In this session, you will learn how to use Git as a protocol for managing and versioning your files. Git allows you to keep track of changes at significant points, and revert changes to previous versions if you need to. We will also learn about GitHub, which is a platform for sharing, versioning, and managing your research projects. GitHub is typically used to publish code, but it can also be used to manage data, write documentation, and share other research materials. In this session, we will learn about GitHub as a platform for collaboratively managing and editing files, keeping track of versions of documents and code, and suggesting improvements to the work of your colleagues. We will explore some examples that show GitHub’s potential for changing how we think about research.
