Version Control for Scripts, Data and Text documents

Version Control for Scripts, Data and Text documents

This class is part of the Research Data Management Seminar Series

Workshop 3: Version Control for Scripts, Data and Text documents

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

Audience: This session is open to HMS/HSPH/HSDM. 

Location: TMEC 227 Mini Amphitheater

Requirements: Participants should bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. Additionally:

Instructors: Radhika Khetani, Training Director & Research Scientist, Harvard Chan Bioinformatics Core, Department of Biostatistics, HSPH
Meeta Mistry, Research Scientist, Harvard Chan Bioinformatics Core, Department of Biostatistics, HSPH
