GitHub Primer

May 23, 2014

Stacy Konkiel recently wrote an e-Science Community Blog post "Getting Comfortable with GitHub in 4 Steps: A Primer for Data Librarians." GitHub is a user-friendly front-end for Git, which is a version control system.

While the blog and post are geared towards librarians who are supporting research data, the steps and resources would be useful for any researcher interested in learning more about using GitHub to manage data and code.
