A few months a go I gave a talk introducing git to the Scientific Computing group (where I work) at The Royal Surrey County Hospital. The talk covers the concept of version control, basic workflows, repository syncing, and branching.

You can view the talk at, and find the source code on my personal Gitlab. I used dotlive to get the basics across and simulate typical collaborative workflows (it’s a little random, but I like to keep things spicy). You can check out the shell scripts on the demo_code branch of the repo.

Since then our group have been discussing practical aspects of git, such as how to handle configuration files when deploying a project, so it would be nice to run a second session touching on these, in addition to diving a little deeper!
