This is part of the Fall 2021 Technical Skills Workshops, organised by the Innovation Information Initiative, and open to the wider innovation research community.
This workshop is based on materials developed by the Carpentries, specifically Introduction to Git, and Version Control with Git. Each session will be 2 hours in length, and will cover the same material. Note that this is an interactive session, and requires a small amount of preparation but no prior knowledge of the material. To attend any of these sessions, please send a note to Agnes Cameron, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monday Nov 29th, 3pm PST / 7am Beijing / 10am Sydney
