Making Good Pull Requests

In the modern style of software development, very rarely does a project exist solely on a single developer’s machine. Software development is a collaborative venture. To do this effectively, collaborators need to be careful when integrating new code into a shared repository.

In this lesson, students will learn how to get started with GitHub Pull Requests and move into more advanced topics such as labels, templates, and reviews.
