Git Good: Using Github for Collaboration in Open Source Communities

  • 1. Alan Turing Institute
  • 2. TU Delft


The Turing Way is a community-led resource for reproducible, open, collaborative, and inclusive data science. Created by  over 300 contributors, The Turing Way uses open source tools to enable people to collaboratively write chapters, build and maintain resources, as well as share their skills and ideas around best practices. Core to this is the version control tool, Github which supports The Turing Way’s  collaborative practices. In this workshop, co-facilitators from The Turing Way Community will introduce participants to using GitHub as a tool to support collaborative documentation-writing and knowledge sharing. They will discuss the importance of open community practices in building and maintaining collective resources, and learn about the importance of different roles in open source documentation communities like The Turing Way: including that of maintainers, reviewers, and translators. Participants will gain hands-on experience in working collaboratively during the workshop by contributing to the The Turing Way project. A shared document will be used for collaborative note-taking, capturing feedback and learnings.
