The all-new GitHub Copilot is an Artificial Intelligence co-programmer that helps you suggests line endings and entire function bodies as you type. It is powered by OpenAI and a product of Codex, and it is a tool that increases work productivity and saves time along with it in the process.
OpenAI claims that the new GitHub Copilot is trained billions and billions of codes and can adapt according to any developer’s needs as it applies to all the coding and ML languages there are in the world.
However, do not be mistaken to think of the GitHub Copilot just as an autocomplete; there is a lot more than meets the eye. The GitHub Copilot can convert comments to codes, so basically, if you can’t remember a function, all you have to do is write the function it performs in comments, and the Copilot will come up with a solution for you.
Moreover, with GitHub Copilot, you’re days of repeatedly typing the same code are gone as it can analyse where repetition is required and autofill the required areas all by itself.
Test runs are an important part of programming, and the Copilot now comes with a feature that suggests the type of tests wthat can be implemented in any portion of the code. It also presents you with alternatives and also suggests different approaches while programming.
