The Git system is widely used by software developers, but can also be used for
project management. In the LUMC we use [GitLab](https://git.lumc.nl) as a
collaborative environment on top of Git. By keeping track of all versions,
history, etc, GitLab makes your projects more reproducible and collaboration

## Program

This year the contents will be slightly less advanced on the technical side
(no branching, no git-annex). Instead, there is more focus on using the LUMC
GitLab server and using Git for data analysis projects.

## Prerequisites

Affinity with the UNIX shell is required before taking the course. For
example, our
[scripting course](https://humgenprojects.lumc.nl/trac/humgenprojects/wiki/scripting)
is more than enough, or you could go though
[tutorials 1-3 here](http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix/).

We encourage you to bring your own laptop, but make sure it has a terminal and
[Git](http://git-scm.com/) installed. We work with
[Linux](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux), but Git also runs on Mac OSX. On
Windows, it is probably easiest to use something like
[MobaXterm](http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/) or
[VirtualBox](https://www.virtualbox.org/) with
[Ubuntu](http://www.ubuntu.com/).

We can also provide you with a laptop that has all the required software
installed. The lessons are interactive, meaning that you really need a
laptop.

There is one [Git submodule](https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Tools-Submodules)
on which this repository depends:

- **[presentation](https://git.lumc.nl/j.f.j.laros/presentation)** template for
  presentations in LaTeX.

First clone this repository, then fetch the data from the submodule:

    git clone https://git.lumc.nl/humgen/gitcourse.git
    cd gitcourse
