Pull Requests

Let's learn about pull requests and how useful they can be when working with a team.

What are pull requests

Pull requests are a way to formally contribute to a project without disrupting the workflow of the other team members and also a way to maintain a check and balance of the contributions added to the project source code.

Platforms such as GitHub have a straightforward and convenient way to create pull requests. These allow other contributors to review and evaluate your submitted work and provide comments and suggestions accordingly.

  • Go over to the project repository on GitHub
  • Switch to the pull requests tab
  • Click on the ‘New pull request’ button on the top right
