GitHub Collaboration

Contributing to GitHub repositories exclusively using the web interface (no command-line git required).

Sign up

Instructor: Lex Nederbragt

This workshop will teach you how to:

  • set up a GitHub repository, and add and modify files
  • invite others to contribute to your repository
  • contribute to other people’s github repositories
  • review, communicate on, and accept contributions from others

All exclusively using the web interface (i.e., without the need to use command-line git)

GitHub is one of the most popular websites for sharing and working together on software. It also frequently used for documentation, or other texts. However, most people will mix working on repositories through the web interface at github.com, and the command-line based version control program ‘git’, which is a rather complex tool to use. GitHub is one of the most popular websites for sharing and working together on software. But did you know Github makes it possible to do almost everything you need to work alone or together on GitHub repositories, without having to know anything about git (the command-line version control tool). This ResBaz GitHub workshop will show you how this is done.

NB time permitting, I will end the workshop showing those interested how to do the same with the command line.


This workshop is a part of Research Bazaar 2017
