Hello, Developer 👋

Once again, we're here and it's the end of September. Fall starts, and winter in the Northern Hemisphere is around the corner.

One good thing about remote work is that you don't have to go out in the morning, get ready, and hit the road because you don't have to work in an office. Rather, enjoy your cup of coffee and start your morning your way. You're in control, not your manager, not the HR dept. nor the team lead.

Also, some people might as well confuse this with being lonely as well. But then here's a quote by Charles Bukowski.

"When nobody wakes you up in the morning, when nobody waits for you at night, and when you can do whatever, you want, what do you call it, Freedom or Loneliness" ~ Charles Bukowski

I hope when presented with a choice. People should understand what freedom is, and what it means to be lonely. Starting from the courage to be disliked, the philosopher said to the young man, "Loneliness is being surrounded by people and feeling disconnected, isolated, and alone."

Skipping forward, what remote work offers you apart from flexible time?

Well, to work on your side projects, save travel expenses, and more time with family & friends. You can utilize the time to work on your health & get a Gym Shark Body.  😂😂

Well, things are limitless in here, if you think about it. Going forward ⏩

Git has been in the software industry for more than a decade now with a lot of features & commands and whilst most of the time simply knowing concepts like how to merge a branch, and how to rebase are good enough for everyday git workflow, there is something new to learn every day with git.

Once such feature is git worktrees. In this tutorial, we will learn about why & how you can get started with git-worktree, and by the end of this article, you will be able to change the way you work with git.

Get your git game up with git worktrees
Git worktrees helps with working on multiple things at once in git. It is a better alternative to “git stash”. Learn how to use worktrees in your daily git workflow.
