One of the reasons Microsoft swooped in was because GitHub is every developer’s greatest friend, especially if they’re working on an open source project.
Students can use GitHub coding for free
Copilot is a coding assistant created in collaboration with OpenAI that has been trained on a large amount of raw code to assist developers in spotting errors, automating repetitive coding chores, and more.
Copilot, the AI-powered function that helps suggest code throughout the writing process, has received some really cool upgrades.
“GitHub Copilot, which was published in a technical preview in June 2021, now proposes around 35% of the code written in popular languages like Java and Python by the tens of thousands of engineers who routinely use GitHub Copilot,” says the company.
The big news from Build is that Copilot will be available more generally in summer 2022, including being made available to students for free. The exact details will be announced at a later date, but this seems like a promising development.
“GitHub Copilot, released in a technical preview in June 2021, today suggests about 35% of the code in popular languages like Java and Python generated by the tens of thousands of developers in the technical preview who regularly use GitHub Copilot,” Microsoft said.
one of the best innovations coming to Copilot is called Explain, offering natural language descriptions of code and what it does. Currently a research project, Explain could be a game changer.
“As a part of Copilot Labs, we launched ‘explain this code’ and ‘translate this code.’ This work fits into a category of experimental capabilities that we are testing out that give you a peek into the possibilities and lets us explore use cases,” GitHutb’s Ryan J. Salva told TechCrunch.
