OpenFest2023 - Workshop on GitHub for academic collaboration


September 4, 2023

Led by Robert Smith (School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield)

This workshop for researchers at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University will provide a straightforward look at how GitHub can enhance academic collaboration, and a practical introduction to using GitHub and other tools in academic settings. The workshop will cover:

  • The benefits of GitHub for academic collaboration
  • Setting up RStudio with Git and GitHub
  • How to collaborate with colleagues on projects in script-based programming languages (e.g. R)
  • Where to find more information - online resources and courses

Note: Delegates will require R and RStudio (https://posit.co/download/rstudio-desktop/) and Git (https://git-scm.com/downloads) to be installed on their laptops before the session if they want to follow the examples in real time.

Refreshments will be provided.
