Being only a little careful is usually enough, but sometimes I need to double check the branch I'm working on (e.g "hm..i'm on
dev branch, right?") and I check the source control path of a random file.
In search for a shorter way, I thought of naming the solution files accordingly (e.g MySolution_Dev.sln) but with different file names on each branch, I can't merge solution files.
So it's not a big deal but are there any methods or "small tricks" you use to quickly ensure you're on the correct branch?
