DS2F:  An Introduction to GitHub for Scientists

DS2F: An Introduction to GitHub for Scientists

Participants in this workshop with Jonathan King will learn how to use the GitHub platform to implement version control. This workshop is designed for researchers interested in using GitHub to organize, document, and share scientific code. Topics will include saving a version history, backing up work to the cloud, sharing work with collaborators, and working with multiple versions of the same file. Familiarity coding in Matlab, Python, or R is preferred but not required.

Jonathan King is a PhD student in Geoscience. His research uses data assimilation to reconstruct past climates. His current focus is on reconstructing Northern Hemisphere temperatures and atmospheric pressure near Antarctica over the last 1,000 years using tree ring records. In his free time, he enjoys climbing and running in the Sonoran desert.
