Copilot Is My Copilot: Pair Programming with an AI

Mark Heckler, Principal Cloud Advocate, Java/JVM Languages, Microsoft

What if you could develop better apps faster? What if you had a pair programming partner to help you write cleaner code, catch bugs, and even write some code for you, whenever you wanted or needed to do so? GitHub Copilot is an AI code completion tool that can help you write better code faster. It’s not a replacement for your hard-won expertise, but it can provide timely assistance. Copilot offers code and test suggestions without judgment, letting you evaluate and consider—then use or discard—logic for inclusion that complements your existing code and style choices. Why overflow your stack when you can use a trained professional? Come to this session to learn how to level up your development process using Copilot.
