Welcome to the 18th edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!
First things first: Happy New Year to you! Let's start off the year 2021 by debating a controversial topic: Should your team use pull requests? Since the introduction of the Pull request practice on GitHub, running and maintaining open-source projects has become a lot easier. Pull requests are intended to make it easier to accept contributions from people outside your trusted committers group. And yet many teams now use pull requests for people inside their own team. Does that really need to be done? Is your team making a costly mistake?
This issue explains why your team doesn't need to use pull requestsand why you should choose continuous integration instead. In addition to some excellent new-year reads, we have an exciting new year challenge for you!.
