When undergoing software development projects a certain discipline and persistency is required, especially if one desired outcome is continuous code enhancement. For this, throughout history several version control systems have been developed so that potential chaos does not ensue when doing joint code development. In this Course Coffee Talk we will practice from scratch the basic necessary operations that every programmer needs to know in order to use GIT, a solution focused on version control that came from Linus Torvalds, father of the Linux kernel.

The objective of the course is to initiate, manage and use a GIT repository and be familiarized with the technology that helps develop in an orderly way small projects, such as an individual class assignment, midsize projects such as Kratos with more than 100 active developers, or even Windows with more than 4000 simultaneous developers. It is recommended to bring your laptop to the course. The talk and the presentation will be in Spanish.
