We've been using Visual SVN / Tortoise for a long time, following Ashley's tutorial on it. Honestly it's been a bit rough so we've decided to look elsewhere.
We settled on GitHub last night. It seems really popular so why not. Anyway, I have a basic understanding of it all, and we've got our repositories set up and ready to go.
Problem now is the workflow. Every tutorial/example I've seen is for contributing to massive open-source community projects and such. We don't want that. We just need a simple workflow for 2 people to work on the same project. I'm not sure we need to delve in to branching and pull requests and everything...can't we just push/pull on a single copy? Or, if anything, have a development branch to push/pull on, and merge it to the master branch once a week or so if there are no conflicts?
If you've got experience with GitHub I'd love some input here. We're just trying to find the simplest, quickest, and safest way to collaborate. Without command lines, if possible. We'd like to stick with the github desktop client / online github.
