Git for scientists

Track changes, work in teams, don't lose data

Git version control is the most useful tool from which scientists can benefit, not only for developing sotfware but also to collaborate in teams. Learn by doing from real-world examples!

The course Git for Scientists is aimed at groups of up to 10 people that are willing to learn how to achieve a professional workflow and how to collaborate on projects.

We will focus on Git best practices, no advanced programming knowledge is required for this course.


Git for scientists will teach you how to exploit a tool that will help you collaborate, track your changes and document your code.

The open source community has quickly shifted to Github to host their projects. The same technology that powers collaborations among big, decentralized teams, can be powering also your research organization. It doesn't matter if you are in a big or small team, proper use of version control makes your work more efficient and less prone to error.

What you are going to learn:

  • Start your own Git project
  • Configure remotes
  • Use different sources: Gitlab, Bitbucket, Github
  • Pull, Push, Merge
  • Work with branches
  • Setup a team project
  • Pull requests
  • Using issues to document changes
  • Better document your code
  • Document Python code with Read The Docs
