Learn how to create branches automatically, when working with source control.

If you are working on a repository for a project and you need to implement a new feature, the first thing you usually do is grab the latest changes from the master or develop branch. Once all these changes have been pulled in, you create a feature branch. Most likely, your branch will have the same identifier as the ticket you are working on. For instance, if I have a ticket, identified as MARKETING-248, it will make sense to have a separate branch to match this ticket. Project management tools —if set up correctly— can integrate with git branches for better visibility.
