GitHub Actions pkgdown workflow



Github is a cloud-based platform commonly used to host open-source coding project… this workshop will introduce how it can be used more broadly to back-up your research projects, collaborate within your lab and with remote colleagues, and even practice open science by (optionally) sharing your research project publicly.

This workshop is open to everyone; NO previous experience with programming/git/command-line is required.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • explain the benefits of version control
  • articulate the differences between git and Github
  • create and update repositories using Github Desktop and the Github website
  • write descriptive README files
  • select and apply a license to a GitHub project
