An important aspect of data science is keeping a record of project code and having easy access to those records. Version control plays a key role in ensuring that a certain version of a script will remain in the future, even after it has been further developed. Additionally, it is common that multiple people are working on a particular project at the same time. Therefore, it is imperative that they can collaborate and edit that project without interfering and ruining another colleagues edits. To resolve these issues, a tool called GitHub is commonly used to share and showcase code. This meetup will give an introduction to Git; currently the most popular version control system. Following the introduction, you will get HandsOn and explore Git yourself as you will be shown how to set up your own GitHub repository.
This meetup doesn’t require and previous experience.
