Using Git Tools to Manage File Changes and Collaborate: Collaboration Platforms

Version control is the practice of managing and sharing changes to documents, programming code, websites or any other files to keep track of what’s been changed, by whom, when and why. All previous versions of files are saved and you can even revert to a previous version. Git is a version control software.

Git-portal sites, like GitHub or GitLab, offer many useful features to facilitate collaborative development.

This session focuses on collaborative development workflows using Git-collaboration sites like GitHub, GitLab or Bitbucket and demonstrates how to work with branches, issue tracking, contribute to projects using pull-/merge-requests, code-review, how to run CI/CD-pipelines and use other common features of these platforms.
