ReproNim Reproducible Basics Module

The core tools: shell, version control, etc. and how proficiency in the use of these tools promotes reproducibility in your research.

This module is a part of the training curriculum from the ReproNim (Reproducible Neuroimaging) Center.

The template for all ReproNim modules is based on templates from the Neurohackweek, Data Carpentry and Software Carpentry workshops.
