Whether you are writing source code or a manuscript, keeping track of changes is a critical part of a successful project. Version control software, like Git, automates the process of backing up and annotating previous versions of your evolving projects. In conjunction with online hosting services like GitHub, it also greatly simplifies the logistical difficulties of working in parallel with collaborators. This “hands-on” tutorial will cover basic usage of the popular version control software Git and the online hosting service GitHub. This is a two-part tutorial so make sure to also sign up for Version Control and Collaboration with Git and GitHub, Part Two. Basic knowledge of the Linux command line is assumed.
