Open Science Office Hours

Open Science Office Hours (OSOH) is an initiative funded by the Tanenbaum Open Science Institute and led by Neuro trainees. We organize events, provide one-on-one support, and curated resources to make it easy for neuroscience researchers at all levels to integrate Open Science practices in their work.

Check out our website to peruse resources, learn where to find us for drop-in office hours, book time with Open Science experts, and get involved!


Intro to Git/Github

Kendra Oudyk

PhD candidate, McGill University

Kendra is a PhD candidate in the lab of Jean-Baptiste Poline, where she works on neuroimaging meta-research. She has been teaching git and GitHub in courses and workshops for several years.


This workshop is aimed at people who are new to git and GitHub, and those who have some experience but want to deepen their understanding. We will begin with a discussion of what is distributed version control and why we should use git in research. We will then go over the basics of using git to track your work, including going back in time to previous versions of your work. Finally, we will explore how to share work on GitHub and some features that help with collaboration on code. The first part of the workshop will be a lecture, and the second part will involve some hands-on activities.
