If you haven’t checked out Copilot, now is the time to start. Copilot is Github’s AI that helps you write code. You can get a 60-day free trial for Copilot and after that is $10 per month. Copilot for Business is coming on December 22nd for organizations that want to adopt it. According to GitHub, it can help you write up to 40% of your code. That is great news for me since I am very lazy and a slow typist. Get to work Copilot!
They also showed off a really cool feature that is in beta that will allow you to talk to Copilot to do your coding. This is a boon to anyone who has to deal with any vision problems or physical limitations that make typing difficult. Check out these videos where they deep-dive into the features:
Get started with Codespaces. - a great look at Codespaces that also uses Copilot. You know it is a real demo because things go wrong, like not having the new Copilot voice recognition feature enabled and April Leonard just ends up just yelling things at her laptop. She quickly recovers, gets Copilot installed, and does a fantastic job showing off Codespaces.
I don’t know if you can make somebody else happy but these tools will certainly make developers' jobs easier.
