  • What is version control and how can it help?
  • What is GitHub and how do I file a pull request?

Workshop 2: Using GitHub as an Automation Tool for Code - If you write code for analyses or create scientific software, it can be helpful to automate some of your code development process. For individuals comfortable with Git/GitHub and/or have attended Intro to Reproducibility and GitHub

Topics covered:

  • What is continuous integration/continuous deployment and how should we be using it as scientific code developers?
  • How to automate things using GitHub Actions
  • Build a basic GitHub Action

Workshop 3: Data Management & Sharing Plans for NIH Proposals - Sharing is vital for the scientific community and new mandates are being put in place, but how do we set ourselves up for success at the grant proposal stage to ensure plans are effective, secure, and manageable?

Topics covered:

  • Understand how and why you should be thinking about the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy for incoming proposals
