GitHub is a free online platform for sharing source code for computational research, open source software, and collaborative coding projects in a version controlled environment. GitHub users can also use the platform for hosting personal blogs, technical documentation, and project websites. These websites are built using Markdown, a simple plain-text formatting language, and Jekyll, an open source static site generator. This interactive workshop will cover the basics of Markdown, Jekyll, and GitHub in a scholarly or scientific context. Please bring your laptop.

Bring your lunch!
