“Git”ing Things Done: Introduction to Git Source Control Software



Git is the most popular distributed version source control system in the world, and is most recognizable as the cloud-based source control offering from GitHub.
While generally associated with programming and software development, Git is well-suited to many challenges actuaries face such as managing development, tracking and documenting changes to our work products, and collaborating with others.
Learn how to use git commands to create and manage repositories, otherwise known as version controlled folders. From there, create branches for modification and experimentation without modifying the original, commit changes to the stack with annotations , and merge branches back into the master pathway.
This webinar will introduce these commands within the context of an actuarial project using some pseudo Python code, documentation files, and data CSV files as if managing the development of an insurance company’s rating manual.
Programming knowledge is not necessary to benefit from using Git and understanding Python is not necessary for this webinar.
