The course will be an introduction to version control, with a strong focus on Git.
Some of the main concepts, like repositories, commits, trees, branches, and merges will be covered, as will many of the basic commands, like clone, add, push, pull, commit, and fork. We will also go one step beyond the basic concepts and explain the fundamentals of how commits and branches can be manually created by using so-called "plumbing" (low-level) subcommands.
The lectures will be complemented by demos, as well as hands-on, during which the participants will learn both how to do simple Git commands as well as more complex cases. The hands-ons will mainly be done using GitHub.
Format: The course will be five half-days and comprised of lectures and hands-on sessions. This is an online-only course (Zoom).
