The best resource I've found for understanding Git and GitHub comes from this 2016 talk (slides here) by Alice Bartlett of the Financial Times (hat tip to Garrick Aden-Buie of RStudio for telling me about it).
I’ve also collected a set of the best Git/GitHub learning materials on the R for the Rest of Us resources page. I’ll refer to several of these individually in later lessons.
