At this point, your work is ready to be reviewed before it’s integrated into the official project.

Pull Requests on GitHub allow collaborators to review and give feedback on proposed code changes before they are merged to the main branch. Through a process of discussion and potentially some extra code changes, the pull request can be ultimately approved, which means you can merge the changes into the official project on the main branch.

When creating pull requests, it’s imperative that you include as much relevant detail in the description as possible in order to save review time. Add any comments or images that might be useful for your reviewer.

It’s also important to ensure that your code is running properly with the updated repository in order to prevent anything from crashing. Lastly, you don’t want to submit a pull request with 50 files containing a plethora of changes, instead, stick to smaller-sized pull requests since they’re easier and faster to review.
