Session Abstract: 

In this demonstration you will learn about Github, a web-based service for hosting open source project contributions, and how to use it to share and access evaluation tools. Participants will walk away with an understanding of github and how it might apply to internal evaluation where front-line staff are required to collect and report data consistently. This session will give novices the tools to utilize the resources shared in repositories and to contribute or adapt resources for their own projects. Advanced topics covered will address additional github features such as: building websites, creating presentations, and mapping geospatial data. Pros and cons of github will be discussed. A public github repository will be made available with all presentation materials and step-by-step instructions.
