How to recover a deleted branch
## Pre-requisite: You have to know your last commit message from your deleted branch.
git reflog
# Search for message in the list
# a901eda HEAD@{18}: commit: <last commit message>
# Now you have two options, either checkout revision or HEAD
git checkout a901eda
# Or
git checkout HEAD@{18}
# Create branch
git branch recovered-branch
# You may want to push that back to remote
git push origin recovered-branch:recovered-branch
