These materials can be used for independent study, but I also use them to support
3.1 Pre-workshop set-up
Optional reading on the big picture motivation: Why Git? Why GitHub?
It is vital that you attempt to set up your system in advance. You cannot show up at the workshop with no preparation and keep up!
These are battle-tested instructions, so most will succeed. We believe in you! If you have trouble, you can open an issue here and we might be able to help in the days leading up to your workshop (no promises).
For satRday Cape Town, we will have a few helpers in the tutorial to help sort out issues. Get as far as you can. Every bit helps.
Try this. Give it about 1 - 2 hours. If you hit a wall, we will help:
- Register a free GitHub account.
- Install or update R and RStudio.
- Install Git.
- Introduce yourself to Git.
- Prove local Git can talk to GitHub.
- Cache your username and password or set up SSH keys so you don’t need to authenticate yourself to GitHub interactively ad nauseum.
- Prove RStudio can find local Git and, therefore, can talk to GitHub.
- FYI: this is where our hands-on activities usually start. We walk through a similar activity together, with narrative, and build from there.
