Introduction to version control with Git – Lecture by Dr. Selina Baldauf // June 15, 4-5 pm


Git is an essential skill if you use any programming language. It allows you to keep track of changes to your project over time, collaborate with others, and maintain a clear and organized project structure. This can save time, improve research efficiency, and also makes it easy to publish your code via platforms such as Github. In this lecture, I will introduce the basic concepts of Git and how to use it for you own projects. The lecture is for Git beginners but also for people who use basic Git for their own projects and want to know a bit more about the concepts behind the workflow.


When? Thursday June 15th, 4-5 pm

Where? Online on Webex


Further information and the Webex link can be found here: https://www.bcp.fu-berlin.de/en/graduiertenzentrum/promovierende/veranstaltungen/workshops/lecture-SB/index.html


This event is part of the lecture series “Scientific workflows: Tools and tips” that will take place online every third Thursday of a month for one hour. You are welcome to join!

This day we will talk about diversity and communication:
·       What is the meaning of language? How can you use language in an appreciative and diversity-conscious way, e.g. in the daily work environment, in team addresses or in research proposals?
·       How can you present your scientific topics confidently? How can I succeed in speaking in front of others with fun and confidence?
·       What role do unconscious biases play in teamsettings? Which strategies can help you deal with your own and others’ unconscious biases and improve team work?
Does that sound interesting? You are warmly invited to participate! More information is given in the attached flyer.
