Description Snippet:

Please bring your laptop and have R and RStudio installed and working. But if things don't work and you're having issues, don't worry! We're here to help (◕‿◕✿)

About this meetup:

We will talk about the basics of version control with Git, and how this sometimes painful looking process can be made easy with RStudio projects.

Although anything you'll learn in this class can be used with any Git web repository, I'll mainly show examples via GitHub. If you don't have one yet please create an account on https://github.com/

Please make sure that you have git installed by typing

git

on your terminal and executing it. I hear git installation can be quite painful on Windows machines, but we will try to help you if you can't figure it out.

Here are some introductory articles/links about Git:
