Deploying a branch that’s not called `master` to Heroku (or pushing to a different branch name on remote in general)? Remembering to prefix the remote’s branch name with the local one might save you some confusion.
$ git push heroku my_branch:master
Where `heroku` is the remote, `my_branch` is the local branch name, and `master` is the remote branch name. Hopefully, I’ll get it right on the first try too, one day.
