GitHub for journalists (repeat session)
We'll cover Github's basics features — repositories, commits, branches, pull requests and issues — using a recent data-driven story as a case study. The goal is for you to leave the class and be able to use GitHub on your own for your next story.
Please note: You will need to bring your own laptop to participate in this class. You will also need to have created an account at GitHub.com and install GitHub Desktop prior to the class.
This session is good for: Journalists who want to collaborate on data analyses, back up their work and share their methodology with (nerdy) readers.
