A Few Git Tips and Tricks

When I first started using Git[^1] in 2010, I began with the Git GUI client, Git Tower. It helped me do most basic things to get started quickly.
At the time, Git was becoming more popular than Subversion (SVN), a popular VCS[^2] in its own right back in the day.

As time passed, I become more involved with team projects and Git seemed even more relevant for tracking and deploying code.
I soon discovered that I could do more with Git using the command line.

git merge --no-ff origin/staging-100

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate-we can not consecrate-we can not hallow-this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

By Abraham Lincoln

The 16th president of the USA until he was assassinated in April of 1963. He led the US through its Civil War - its bloodiest and greatest moral, constitutional and political crisis.
