In depth software workshop: how to implement version control in your research practice
29-01-2020 11:45 29-01-2020 17:00 VU Main Building HG-7A36

Open Science aims to make research open, transparent and reproducible. On January 29th, we will discuss how to use version control to achieve a reproducible research process. This workshop is aimed at people who know what version control is and want to learn more about the practical details of implementing it in their workflow. Please note that we are also organizing a more introductory workshop to cover the basic concepts of version control.

This is a hands-on workshop, so bring your laptop!

What you call the “final” version almost never is….

Your research output, whether it is your manuscript, your research data, or an analytical workflow, goes through an unpredictable number of versions. What you call the final version almost never is.

In this workshop, you will learn:

-          how to set up version control through the command line

-          how to efficiently collaborate on files with others

-          how to set up continuous integration with Git

Who should attend?

This workshop is aimed at people who know what version control is and want to learn more about the practical details of implementing it in their workflow. In this workshop, we use Git from the Unix Shell. Some previous experience with the shell is expected, but isn’t mandatory.

Please note that we are also organizing a more introductory workshop to cover the basic concepts of version control. Are you not sure which workshop is the best one for you? Ask Sander Bosch (s.e.bosch@vu.nl) for advice!
