Data analysts can use the Git version control system to manage a motley assortment of project files in a sane way (e.g., data, code, reports, etc.). This has benefits for the solo analyst and, especially, for anyone who wants to communicate and collaborate with others. Git helps you organize your project over time and across different people and computers. Hosting services like GitHubBitbucket, andGitLab provide a home for your Git-based projects on the internet.

What's special about using R and Git(Hub)?

  • the active R package development community on GitHub
  • workflows for R scripts and R Markdown files that make it easy to share source and rendered results on GitHub
  • Git- and GitHub-related features of the RStudio IDE
For details, refer to tutorial description.
