Final_v2_rev3_final_FINAL.docx got you down? Version tracking, or version control, is the management of changes to any file or document. Version control is like a savings program for your project. Implementing a file versioning strategy at the beginning of your research project will help to avoid confusion amongst collaborators and avoid lost time and effort trying to recover the "right" version of a file.

This virtual session will review a few ways for tracking different versions of a file, focusing on using git for version control.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize why version control is useful
  • Identify ways to implement version control
  • Distinguish between Git and GitHub
  • Demonstrate the basics of how Git works
  • Find additional training and get help
