Version control and replication is becoming increasingly important for researchers in social science.
Git is a widely-used version control system that helps us organize code versions in joint or individual projects. In a short workshop, Jared and Giacomo introduced to LEAP the main principles and basic toolkit of Git, with an application in Stata and a dedicated GitHub repository. Find below their materials (a recording, slides, and their example GitHub repository), as well as other public resources about Git.
