(results collected from 19 respondents out of 30 participants, a response rate of 63%)

Abstract

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.

Objective of the training

The objectives of this course are to help the participants learn how to use GIT in order to manage the development of a multi-site and multi-developer code.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, you will be able to :

  • to use the essentials of GIT for all your source code developments;
  • choose the best strategy concerning the creation of different branches;
  • solve the conflicts during the “commit phases”;
  • work in small teams or big teams with GIT.

Teaching methods

The training is an alternation of theoretical presentations and practical work. A multiple choice question allows the final evaluation. The training room is equipped with computers, the work can be done in sub-groups of two people.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to manage the development of their codes.

Prerequisites and registration

In order to follow this course, you need to:

  • be familiar with the use of basic Linux commands
  • the training can take place in French or in English depending on the audience, level B2 of CEFR is required.

To verify that the prerequisite is satisfied, the following questionnaire must be completed. You need to get at least 75% of correct answers in order to be authorized to follow this training session.
