Software workshop: how version control can improve the reproducibility of your research
Open Science aims to make research open, transparent and reproducible. On February 5th, we will discuss how version control can help you to improve the reproducibility of your research practice. This workshop is aimed at people who want to learn what version control is and how they can use it in their daily work practice. Please note that we are also organizing a more in-depth workshop that covers how you can implement version control.
This is a hands-on workshop, so bring your laptop!
What you call the “final” version almost never is….
Your research output, whether it is your manuscript, your research data, or an analytical workflow, goes through an unpredictable number of versions. What you call the final version almost never is.
In this workshop, you will learn version control can help you:
- keep track of changes and versions of the files you (and others) are working on,
- make your research process and its documentation more transparent and better reproducible for yourself and others
