Ways to apply your changes on a branch

Now that you have delved into the intricacies of branch management and workflows in DevOps, you are likely starting to see the big picture. You have come to understand how your individual commits contribute to the overall development stream. The next step in this journey is to connect the dots—more specifically, consider how the code you have written gets merged into the mainline.

The code base is a living, collaborative environment; it holds a history of contributions from various team members. In a fast-paced environment, it may be tempting to rush through commits or push large chunks of changes all at once to meet deadlines. However, when merging, it is crucial to consider how your changes contribute to a consistent, understandable, and stable shared environment. This consideration becomes particularly vital in a DevOps culture, where the objective is not just rapid deployment but also frictionless collaboration.
