We are going to use Github (http:\/\/github.com) to share code examples and assignments with you for the class. We set up a master repository that will get updated with assignments as the course progresses. You are going to use the "git clone" command to make your own copy of this repository. You can edit and add your own code to this cloned repository, and then "push" the code back to us so we can run the code and grade your assignments. See the Setting up Github protocol for how to get started with Github. This protocol focuses on how to make a clone or copy of the class master repo in your own directory on the UA HPC (\/rsgrps\/bh_class\/username). The master repository is available in Github (https:\/\/github.com\/hurwitzlab\/biosys-analytics) on remote server. The "git clone" command copies that existing Git repository to your own directory. This \u201cworking copy\u201d is a full-fledged Git repository\u2014has its own history, manages its own files, and is a completely isolated environment from the original repository.
