Using multiple worktrees with git

Modern development with Git is great. It's really easy to work on a feature branch, make changes, undo changes (oops), and share work with colleagues. However, there are challenges. If I'm running tests on my local "beer" branch, I can't easily switch over to the "gin" branch to edit code. The local environment only has one feature branch checked out at a time. I can run tests, or add code, or switch branches, but I can't do two things on two different branches at once...

But now I can! Thanks to Manoj Mahalingam S, I know understand the "git worktrees" feature which lets you easily use multiple branches at the same time. Thanks, Manoj!
