Fluid Pull Requests

Pull requests are the backbone of the DevOps infrastructure across many companies in the industry. However, they are fast becoming the #1 bottleneck in engineering teams negatively impacting the throughput, stability, and culture of dev teams. Fluid pull requests are an extension of pull requests with principles from trunk-based development. In this talk, Marcelo will show the current problems with pull requests and how fluid pull requests solve them.
