Goal of this workshop

The goal of this workshop is to begin to understand and use Git and GitHub. You will not be an expert by the end of the class. You will probably not even feel very comfortable using Git. This is okay. We want to make a start but, as with any skill, using Git takes practice.

This is your session. If you have a question or feel we are going too fast, please let the instructor know. We can decide as a group what to cover. Browse workshop presentation to familiarize yourself with the topics covered in the workshop.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Create a Git repository on their local machine and track changes

  • Link a local Git repository to a remote GitHub repository and sync changes

Actual schedule may vary depending on group needs.

Please create a GitHub account and install Bash and Git before the workshop. See Setup for instructions.
