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

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 the 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. If you don’t succeed it, your subscription will not be validated. You only have two chances to complete it.

New regional climate projections for metropolitan France

superadmin |  11 February 2021

Cerfacs collaborated with Météo France and the Institut Pierre-Simon-Laplace (IPSL) to produce the DRIAS climate dataset, which presents a wide range of possible climate changes for metropolitan France for three periods of the 21st century (2021-2050, 2041-2070 and 2071-2100) and three greenhouse gas emission scenarios.

New research group “Theory and Climate”

Mélanie ROCHOUX |  1 February 2021

CECI is involved in the development of a new research group (GDR for “Groupement De Recherche”) entitled “Theory and Climate”. This GDR aims at bringing together the entire community of theorists (mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, data scientists, etc.) working on climate sciences, with the goal of developing and sharing innovative concepts and tools relevant for a better understanding of climate dynamics. This GDR is interdisciplinary and involves several CNRS research institutes as well as most of French organizations working in these fields. CECI plans to contribute to issues related to climate dynamics and applied mathematics such as data assimilation and machine learning. Moreover, there are strong links between this GDR and the LEFE-INSU actions, in which CECI researchers are active (LEFE-IMAGO and LEFE-MANU actions). More information here:Read more
