We regularly get questions about how to achieve a particular thing. As developers, there are parts of our workflow that trip us up, that our tools can help us with if we understand how to use them. So, we’ve decided to start answering these real-world questions with videos showing what to do.

The first video features me, Trisha Gee (Developer Advocate for IntelliJ IDEA) and Gary Hockin (Developer Advocate for PhpStorm) answering the question, “How do I switch branches without losing the code I was working on?” Through frequent battles with Git, I have learned that there’s always more than one way to do things, so in this video, we present two different options. We’re also two advocates using two different IDEs, coding in two different languages — many challenges we face as developers aren’t unique to our language or tool.
