The pull request is both a feature and a philosophy—it takes a stand on openness, collaboration and culture. While most PR use cases are straightforward, other novel uses offer deeper learning opportunities. We’ll walk through different ways to deploy pull requests to model the values of open source, share understanding, learn from mistakes, and build a community of practice.
In this session, the GitHub Education Liaison will walk through classroom and educational examples of different ways to use the pull request to maximize understanding and craft a collaborative learning experience. We will point to examples from FIRSTRobotics, Delft University, Stanford University, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to show the concepts in action.
In addition to more robust code quality, relationships, and a portfolio, pull requests model the values of open source by surfacing interconnectedness and constant improvement.
Though this session would be most useful for educators and trainers, anyone who manages teams of developers will find the lessons around collaboration and openness applicable.
