Git using Rstudio

Researchers working with R do write code and benefit from using version control. As git is not the most straightforward environment to work with for non-IT specialists, this lesson provides a first introduction to git inside the Rstudio environment.

Prerequisites

Having R, git and RStudio installed (though see the setup section for installation instructions) and a Github account.
