On 28 May, 2020, NeSI Apps Support team member Callum Walley and University of Auckland data scientist Eirian Perkins delivered a training webinar on Git fundamentals. The pair summarised the benefits of using a version control tool and shared the core concepts and commands researchers should know to get started with Git and GitHub. Specifically, this webinar covered: 

  • Terminology - what do things like push, pull, clone, local, and remote mean,
  • how to setup and maintain a git repository, and
  • how to use GitHub for collaboration
