GitHub Pull Request

A GitHub "pull request" (PR) is a request to pull changes from 1 repo on GitHub to another. PRs are most commonly used as a code-review mechanism, where developers submit PRs for review before merging the code in those PRs to their company's shared repo. We will use PRs in SWE Fundamentals to submit projects.
When we've pushed our changes to our repo, we'll click the "Pull requests" button to create a new pull request.
