This course will be offered via Zoom, over two mornings. Attendance is required as the course will not be recorded.
In this course, participants will learn how to keep track of the code they use in their research using the version control system Git and the collaboration platform GitHub. Git allows you to keep track of changes to your code, easily revert to previous versions, and “tag” versions of code used in publications so that the exact code used can be retrieved at a later date. GitHub allows Git users to collaborate with each other on projects by managing simultaneous changes to the same files and allowing users to review and discuss each others’ code. Git and Github are applicable to any text-based programming or analysis language, including R, Python, Stata, Julia, and others.
The theme of the next Carolina Data Science Now seminar is Libraries, Literature, and Learning.
The event will feature three lightning talks by professors and researchers in UNC-Chapel Hill’s academic community, entered around how data science is used to enhance research methodology and techniques in projects involving bibliographic data, literary texts, and virtual makerspaces. The event will be moderated by Matt Jansen, and speakers include Michelle Cawley, Grant Glass, and Maggie Melo. These talks will be followed by a guided panel, an opportunity for questions and answers with the speakers, and a discussion with the data science community at UNC-Chapel Hill.
