Register for a workshop on Version Control using GIT.

If you are working with code (text files to be specific) of any form, be it your simulations, scripts, android apps, websites, LaTeX files etc. you should be saving them using version control tools like GIT instead of using Google Drive or Dropbox.

Why version control?

  1. Collaboration: If you are working on a group project, many people can edit the same files at the same time
  2. Storing version the proper way, rather than making copy of your files (like file1_final.py, file1_absolutely_final.py or file1_05052017.py, file1_06052017.py etc.)
  3. Restoring previous versions
  4. Understanding what happened
  5. Backup
