\maketitle
The vast majority of CASA members do not use content trackers to store computer files. Especially in software management and group projects, the importance of version control systems for tracking changes cannot be overstated. Version control systems are a category of software tools that help a team or individual manage changes to source code and other files over time. In this colloquium and on the upcoming CASA Day, we would like introduce you to working with one of the mainstream version control systems called Git. It is designed for coordinating work among programmers, but it can be used to track changes in any set of files. Git has a remote repository which is stored in a server and a local repository which is stored in the computer of each team member. This means that the code is not just stored in a central server, but a full copy of the code is present on multiple computers. We will teach you how changes on individual computers can be monitored with one single remote repository.\\
In the colloquium on October 23, 2019, we present you with the basics of Git in a presentation. We will give you instructions on how to install Git and create a local Git repository. Furthermore, we will prepare a tutorial for you to work on at home. This homework tutorial will teach you the basics of using Git and prepare you for the workshop session on CASA Day, 31th October. The aim of the introductory colloquium, homework and CASA Day workshop is to teach you how to backup, organize and share code/LaTeX documents more safely and efficiently, and introduce the TU/e provided Gitlab.
