Version control is widely adopted in industry because it enables software development in groups, yet few students gain sufficient experience through their undergraduate courses. Even though version control is ideal for work submission, faculty may avoid it in favor of course management systems used only in academia. This tutorial introduces software to automate setting up version control with cloud project hosting services, and gives experience with version control as a side-effect of work submission and collection. This tutorial assumes no prior experience.
