Active Project Version Control with Git

Active Project Version Control with Git Online

Tired of wading through files titled paper_v1, paper_v2, paper_v3_beforeAdvisor... ?

Final_v2_rev3_final_FINAL.docx got you down? Version tracking, or version control, is the management of changes to any file or document. Version control is like a savings program for your project. Implementing a file versioning strategy at the beginning of your research project will help to avoid confusion amongst collaborators and avoid lost time and effort trying to recover the "right" version of a file.

Attendees will participate in multiple exercises in setting up repositories, where the changes and history are stored, working through the iterative process of altering files & recording changes, and rewinding the clock to retrieve a file at any point in the creative process.

This hands-on workshop will introduce the concepts of using a version control system to manage changes and the history of your data files (text, web, scripts, etc.).

Meeta Mistry, Interim Director of Bioinformatics Training, Senior Research Scientist, Harvard Chan Bioinformatics Core
