About the course

Git is a protocol for collaborative software version control. Using Git to manage your code lets you track changes and collaborate with multiple colleagues on the same project. It is a crucial and widely used standard both in large tech companies and many open source communities. In scientific programming, Git is also the standard and therefore this skill is highly relevant for all scientific fields.

Researchers and students at WUR have access to the Gitlab service at, a server on which source code can be shared and edited through the Git protocol. The workshop will be given by certified instructors from the eScience Center and is based on the Software Carpentries curriculum.
