# Git introduction course
# Data management with GitLab
The Git introduction course aims at everyone who works in the Bioinformatics
field. We cover a *version control system* named *Git*. This system is widely
used by software developers, but can also be used for project management. By
keeping track of all versions, history, etc. collaboration with colleagues is
easy and your analysis will be reproducible.
This is the website for the course *Data management with GitLab*. This course
consists of a introduction to working with the [Git](http://git-scm.com/)
version control system for data analysis and is aimed primarily at researchers
in the LUMC.
You can find the
[course website on our wiki](https://humgenprojects.lumc.nl/trac/humgenprojects/wiki/git). This
repository contains lectures and practicals, written in LaTeX.
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
with colleagues easy.
