Advent of Pull Requests Best Practice - Day 15

Today, I'm wrapping up my series on handling conflicts in pull requests. Here's my final take:

  • Keep Everything Intact: While you're busy untangling those conflict knots, watch out for accidentally dropping or tweaking someone else's hard work. It's super important to make sure every feature and fix makes it through to the final, merged version of our code.
  • Test After You Tangle: Once you've resolved those conflicts, give the affected parts of your app a thorough test run. We need to make sure everything's running smoothly and as expected. Sometimes, even the best-intentioned fixes can stir up new bugs, so this step is a must.
  • Get a Fresh Set of Eyes: After you've done the heavy lifting and resolved the conflicts, it's really smart to get someone else to review your work. This is especially true if you had to make big changes during the resolution process. A fresh review is like a safety net, catching any issues that might have slipped in unnoticed.

That's it from me on this topic. Hope these tips help you navigate those tricky pull request conflicts with ease!
