Code review is one of the most important practices engineers should have. Your code will always need to be reviewed, and you will always need to review your coworkers' code. If you approach code reviews as a learning process, everyone wins.
Pull request templates allow your organizations to have a default text when you create a pull request on GitHub. It is quite useful to make sure to follow a standard process for every pull request and to have a to-do list for the author to check before requesting a review.
Pull requests are an opportunity for a software developer to notify team members (or open-source project maintainers) that a feature or fix, developed on a different branch is ready. Learn more about them in our study.
