Git Questions – How do I switch branches without losing my work?

Git can be hard, particularly if you’ve been dropped in at the deep end and are only used to working in a specific way, so it’s our intention to address how to accomplish certain version control tasks in a JetBrains IDE during this series.

In this first episode, myself (Gary Hockin, Developer Advocate for PhpStorm) and Trisha Gee (Developer Advocate for IntelliJ IDEA and all-around Git expert) sit down to discuss how to swap branches without losing your work.

We’d love to hear what you think of this different format. It’s meant to be less formal, more like a series of video podcasts than polished screencasts. Let us know what you think in the comments, or you can tweet me at @GeeH, or Trisha at @trisha_gee.

Without further ado, here’s the video.

    I really like this format 😉
    Some other useful topic would be solving merge conflicts.
