Once changes are merged, in order to keep things organized and managed, it’s imperative to only keep active branches and delete the closed ones.

With that in place, this wraps up the flow of working on a project using Github. We explored:

  • The importance of creating branches and isolating work from the main branch.

  • Best practices of naming branches and making commits on branches.

  • What a pull request is: a discussion page for a set of code changes between one branch and another.

  • Merging a branch and delete it once it’s merged.

This covers the main steps of working with a team and managing the workflow using Github.

Github provides us with a number of useful tools that expand on Git functionality, especially if we’re collaborating with teammates!
