Growing currants

Last May I bought a currant seedling at an edible schoolyard sale. I have no idea what type it is. A few weeks ago it leafed out and has been growing almost alarmingly fast since then. I probably want to take it out of the pot it has lived in for the last year. My research suggests I want to put it in sun or light shade. Any other advice before I stick it in the ground? How much space should I give it? One blog I found said I should plant it deeper than it was in the pot. True? And is it likely to bloom this year? And should I prune it after planting? So many questions. Thanks.
