New learning unit in the Network eAcademy – Version Control: GitHub

A new learning unit has been published in the GÉANT Network eAcademy, as part of the “AGILE, DevOps, CI/CD” track: “Version Control: GitHub”.

GitHub is a cloud-based utility for hosting Git repositories. It facilitates version control and collaboration with Git.

While utilising Git without Github requires technical knowledge and command-line experience, GitHub’s user-friendly interface makes Git accessible also to neophyte programmers. In fact, GitHub is so user-friendly that some people even use it to manage other non-code projects, such as writing novels!
