Pull Requests And Code Reviews

There are two words that will help open a lot of doors in life. Push and Pull. Here, we’re going to talk about Pull Requests. Pull requests have since become a standard part of the software development process and are closely associated with code reviews. Code reviews involve teamwork and collaboration on code and serve as one of the four main drivers of software development, alongside speed, quality, and efficiency.

AI serves to make it easier and faster for real people to carry out their work more accurately. This is especially true when it comes to working with large amounts of complex data, as is definitely the case when managing software development teams. Software development is expensive. The larger the company and/or project, the more complex it is and the more inclined it is to be challenged or fail outright. 

AI heavily reinforces Agile’s first value, that, people come first. Everything about software development boils down to individual developers and team dynamics. Using AI for Agile project management involves a focus on continuously improving each developer’s skill and aptitude for teamwork. Everything else is a natural and logical extension of helping all software development stakeholders achieve their full potential and work better as a team.

Remember – successful software, at a minimum, is delivered on time, on budget, and according to specifications – all of which depend on team skill and teamwork. AI helps managers, and actually all stakeholders, better channel the resources, training, and mentoring, as well as improve work processes and team interaction to help everyone do their best.

This format depends upon self-reporting where answers may reflect more on the individual than the task. It’s also likely that team members are thinking more about what they should say than listening to what others are sharing. Not everyone is brave enough to volunteer that they need assistance with a task. This standup routine can be painfully monotonous. If you’re using this format, and you can see engagement could be better, you might just need to mix up the format.

The Gitential Guide on How to Reduce the Size of Your Git Repository

Unfortunately, there are no easy ways on how to reduce the size of your git repositories. However, there are quite a few ways to keep your repositories down to an efficient and easily manageable size. Many of them are fairly simple and can be set up fairly quickly. But, they probably won’t help you if you are already exceeding your repository cap on Bitbucket, Github, Gitlab, or Azure DevOps. For this scenario, we can help you identify what to target when it becomes necessary to deal with a large repository.
