📄️ Customize your GitHub PR Review workflow to save time and reduce errors
A Pull Request (PR) makes it easy for software developers to collaborate and discuss proposed changes to the code base. When a developer or contributor wants to make a change to the source code, s/he would open a PR that contains all proposed changes. The project’s code owners (or maintainers for open source projects) would then review the PR, discuss it in a message board, request changes, and decide if it can be merged into the code base.
📄️ Reduce alert fatigue through GitHub notification triage
For many software developers, being bombarded by email notifications from GitHub is a frustrating yet common experience. The alert fatigue is real. The asynchronous nature of email also encourages the developer to ignore the excessive notifications, resulting in missed notifications and opportunities.
📄️ Streamline and automate GitHub Issue responses
GitHub issues is an important channel for software development teams to receive product feedbacks, feature requests, and bug reports from users. A typical workflow of an issue starts from a review from the project owner or lead developer. If the issue is valid, it will be tagged (categorized), scheduled and assigned to a developer on the team. The developer then work on it, update it, and create a PR to close the issue.
📄️ DevRel automation with GitHub
GitHub is a great platform for companies and open source projects to build a developer community. A best practice for community building is to immediately respond to new users and contributors when they first engage your projects with new stars, forks, issues and PRs. But that typically requires dedicated community managers in all time zones. DevRel is hard! It is a task that is ripe for automation!
