GitHub for journalists
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.
**You must bring a laptop to participate in this class. You will also need to create 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
