The CAS maintains an active organizational account on GitHub. What's GitHub? It's a cloud-based version control system that allows actuaries and others to share and enhance code. Note that code encompasses more than just software. By writing in a format like RMarkdown, we can also share research papers, and other human-readable items.

If you'd like to learn more about git and GitHub, the CAS has a series of microlearning videos which give an overview.
