"Weekly" Resource #3

These "weekly" resource posts are getting fewer and far between each time I write one. So from now on, I will be changing them by removing the weekly part and instead just make them whenever I think I have found enough content to put in them. Some weeks I come across loads of things that I think are cool, interesting, or useful and others nothing at all.

git pro tip

First up a blog post that has helped me a couple of times where I haven't branched before making a commit.

Moving your latest commit

The magical code that has saved me a couple of times now is this one.

git branch feature
git reset --hard HEAD~1

All it's doing is creating a branch off of the current one you're on with you're commit and then hard resetting the branch you're on by one commit. (I recommend double checking that the new branch has the accidental commit on it first, but that's just me being over cautious) This only works if you haven't pushed yet though.

Drawing things

I came across this list of links from Make Use Of for helping you improve your drawing. I haven't looked at them all myself yet but I'm keeping note of these as they look like there's some really good info there.
