Developers, you have your peer AI programmer


GitHub has made the GitHub Copilot generally available to individual developers. It allows developers to make extensive use of artificial intelligence (AI) to write and complete code. It can not only suggest the next line of code, but also complete methods, boilerplate code, entire unit tests, and even complex algorithms.

GitHub Copilot, which is available as an editor extension, distills the collective knowledge of developers around the world into an editor extension that suggests code in real time. It empowers developers in the following ways:

  • AI-powered coding suggestions: you can get code suggestions that match your project’s context and style conventions, then browse through different options to decide what to accept, reject, or modify.
  • Using the preferred environment: It is designed to work with popular editors including Neovim, JetBrains IDEs, Visual Studio, and Visual Studio Code as a discrete extension.
  • Coding in Uncharted Territory: GitHub Copilot can help you learn new programming languages ​​by suggesting code and syntax in dozens of different languages, so you can spend more time learning by doing.

“With over 1.2 million developers in our Tech Preview over the past 12 months, people who have started using GitHub Copilot have quickly told us that it has become an indispensable part of their daily workflows. files where it is enabled, almost 40% of the code is written by GitHub Copilot in popular coding languages, like Python, and we expect this to increase, giving developers more time and space to focus on solving bigger problems and building even better software. – mentioned GitHub in his blog post.

GitHub Copilot is available to all developers for $10/month or $100/year and is also free to verified students and maintainers of popular open source projects.
