Git for non Programmers

Git (initially written by Linus Torvalds) is a version control program used by programmers. However on a Linux system nearly all files are text files, shell scripts, config files, Html, LaTex etc - they can be version controlled.

An introduction to Git and the basic commands will be presented and how to use it with Vim, Emacs, LibreOffice and Inkscape. There will also be a demonstration on how to use Git Hub.
