Git: Create a branch on your local machine, switch to it and then push it on the server

Following are a couple of simple commands that we use daily to create a new branch on git and push it to the git server.

The following command will create locally a new branch called branch_name and switch to it.

git checkout -b branch_name;

The following command will push the local branch you are currently switched to on the git server.
It will be made available to the server using the name branch_name.

git push --set-upstream origin branch_name;
