## Event A pull request is a method for submitting contributions to a software project. Maintainers or contributors review these pull requests to discuss the proposed changes and help ensure the changes meet the project guidelines and quality standards. In this talk, we will learn about three components for reviewing a pull request:
1. The mechanics of code review on GitHub. 2. The social aspects of code review and how to effectively give feedback. 3. The technical aspects of reviewing a pull request.
