Free training for Phytolith researchers - Github basics

Dear Phytolith Friends,

As part of the new International Committee on Open Phytolith Science, we want to engage with the Phytolith community to discuss issues around open science and offer training in open science tools.
We are going to start this initiative by offering a basic course in Github. Github is a tool that is used for research project management and history tracking of your work during projects. It can be used to store and collaborate during projects with data, code and documentation. It is also useful for making free websites. This first course will cover the basic web interface of Github and how to make repositories, add files and folders. It will also include some examples of uses of Github.
Here is an example of a Github repository used for a phytolith project:
And a website produced using Github:
There will be two other courses organised this year to cover collaboration with Github and also advanced uses of Github.
The basic Github course will take place on Friday 11th February. It will run for two hours and will run twice on the same day with the same content.
Please choose the session at the best time for you - 9am to 11am UTC or 2pm to 4pm UTC.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
Emma Karoune and Celine Kerfant
On behalf of the International Committee on Open Phytolith Science
