How to create a Pull Request by Submitting your first Pull Request to Github

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create a simple pull request by submitting your first pull request to Github. After we walk through submitting your first pull request to Github I am going to show you how to find issues that you can work on in some of your favorite open-source projects. If you want to contribute on open-source projects these days it is important to understand how to find issues that you can work on and understand the process for getting your changes into a project.

When you have completed this tutorial you should understand:
✅ How does a Github Pull Request differ from your normal daily workflow
✅ What is a Pull Request?
✅ Creating a simple Github pull request
✅ Submitting your first pull request to Github
