[sharing tools/experiences] github copilot can be a nice addition

Just trying out the github copilot (https://copilot.github.com/) for a couple of weeks, it supports julia and some of the suggestions I get from it are uncannily useful, almost brings a smile and it’s been a fun experience!


Me I’ve been making a lot of repos with things like

# draw a rectangle
run(`echo "It's all apples here" > ~.profile`)

in them.
Also a lot of fun.

Edit: don’t run that. It’s a bad joke.


Hi! Is it working better for Julia than what people reported last year? Cheers

Currently, GitHub Copilot comes with a 60 day free trial. Give it a shot and see. I think this could be a great help for spreading the Julia language. Especially since Copilot is free for students.

My advice: Keep your hands off GitHub Copilot.
