I used GitHub Copilot for 4 months. My 5 Key Takeaways.

What is GitHub Copilot? Your AI pair programmer! It’s an extension in your favorite code editor that helps writing code, using AI.

I use it daily and there aren’t a lot of tools I use daily!

My Key Takeaways:

✅ Code completion.

It is good, it’s exceptionally good! It often impresses me.

✅ Convert Comments to Code

Enter a comment describing what you want to do and look at the magic 💥!

✅ Autofill Repetitive Code

Writing large blocks of boilerplate code? Just input a few examples of the pattern. Copilot will handle the rest.

✅ Error prevention

Suggestions are the most probable, relevant, and safest code. It reduces the chance of writing errors.

✅ Finding solutions

Sometimes I go through different suggestions, to see alternative solutions to my problem.
