git clone https://github.com/stephlocke/Rtraining.git
Branches are different containers of code - they don’t impact each other. This means that you can make them for features, for trying something out, for releases etc
git branch breakallthethings
git checkout breakallthethings
Tell git which bits of code you’re happy* with.
git add iLoveCursors.sql
* For various definitions of happy

git commit -m "I loves me some cursors"
Super happy with your? Publish it to the master branch
git checkout master
git merge breakallthethings -m "I didn't break all the things"
