Discussion on: How do you name your git branches?

I have a little script that takes the title of a Github Issue and kebab_cases it. I also prefix the Issue number, so all our branches are like:


We use issue numbers a lot when we talk in the team, so when I want to checkout a branch, I just do git checkout the issue number and tab tab.

We do not prefix with the name of the developer because we have cases where one developer can take over the job of another developer.
