I’ve taught a lot of people to use R. Once they get the basics down, one of the first questions they ask is: how do I share my code with others?
Should they email it? But then, if they need to change the code, they have to send it again.
Should they put it on Dropbox? But if multiple people work on a file on Dropbox, all sorts of problems ensue.
What to do? The answer is Git and GitHub.
Using Git and GitHub allows you to share code, ensuring everyone has the most up-to-date code and allowing multiple people to work on the code at the same time.
The problem, though, is that learning to use Git and GitHub is hard. Most of the resources are designed for hard-core programmers. It can be intimidating to be faced with a wall of obscure terminal commands when all you want to do is work with others on your R code.
This course walks you through everything step-by-step. You’ll see how to install and configure everything you need and learn how to efficiently collaborate with others using Git and GitHub. And you’ll learn to do all of this working in RStudio, a tool you already know and love.
If you’re ready to learn the tools that the pros use to collaborate, Using Git and GitHub with R is the course for you.
