Versioning systems: introduction to GIT

nasri |  

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (4  hours)



GIT is a distributed revision control and source code management system. It was initially designed for Linux kernel development and is particularly adapted to multi-site and multi-developer environments. In the morning, the basic knowledge of source code management are taught, presenting most GIT functionalities with many illustrations. A brief comparison with other management tools (Mercurial,CVS,SVN) is also proposed. In the afternoon, a hands-­on session with detailed exercices is organized to illustrate the main concepts.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists
and numerical analysts who wish to learn to manipulate the CFD code AVBP.


Unix standard usage:command line/file creation and editing /filesystem navigation.
