GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING INTO OTHER GIANT ROBOTS

Push the current git branch, even if you've never pushed it before

The first time you push a git branch to a remote, you have to be explicit the first time:

git push origin my-branch-name

Every time after that, a simple git push will work fine. But there's a ~/.gitconfig setting that will let you just git push without needing that initial explicitness:

[push]
# Push current branch even if you've never pushed it before
default = current

You might want to take a look at my gitconfig for more tips.
