Have you ever lost track of the changes you made to a document? Or worked with several versions and forgotten which is which? Or have you wanted to collaborate with someone and couldn’t easily undo their changes or see what they did? Version Control solves all of those problems. It lets you track, revert and accept changes that you or someone else makes to a document or code. You can even contribute to projects online and make suggestions or contribute ideas. Come learn the basics of Version Control using Github, the popular version management system used by developers and others looking for a way to manage revisions.
Beginners of all ages are welcome!
