In the last job interview for a Data Scientist position a skill required was the version control knowledge.
A version control system is a changes management tool for software development, one of the most common is GIT.
A new project on Git is called a repository, you can also host online a repository trough Git Hub.
The 16th of April 2016 I created my Git Hub account, without a clear idea of what a repository was.
A friends from MUG suggested to put here my projects and create a repository.
Here I created at least five repositories for five different projects in three different languages, whitout knowing how Git worked.
So after the first interview step I decided to take a more rigorous approach and I started “Introduction to Git for Data Science“.
The course explained the basics of Git:
- What is a repository
- How to create
- How to commit new files
- How to manage conflicts between different versions
The course is based on DataCamp server, you don’t need to install Git on your PC.
I started applying what I learned on my projects, creating new repositories on my PC.
The next goal for the following days is to update all my repositories on Git Hub through Git Bash.
