GitHub Copilot with Michelle Mannering
GitHub Copilot is here! Are we all going to lose our jobs? While at NDC in Oslo, Carl and Richard talked to Michelle Mannering about how Copilot helps you write code - emphasis on help! Michelle explains that Copilot is able to take your explanations of what code needs to be written to find examples of that code for you to take advantage of. It's still up to you to break down the problem well enough, but you spend less time fussing with syntax. This is especially powerful when calling into unfamiliar APIs or coding in languages you have less experience with. The conversation dives into how the developer ecosystem continues to evolve with these new tools, so that we can do more faster!
Known as the “Hackathon Queen” I work as a Developer Advocate for GitHub. Everyday I get to engage with the vibrant developer community. As part of the DevRel team, we’re here to listen to the community, understand them, and provide people with the tools and resources to succeed in open source. Coding and development aren’t always just about writing lines of code You’ll often find me talking about collaboration, good documentation, open source, and live coding. These things are important as it helps shape your product or service, as well as how people engage with them. In my ‘spare’ time I’m a streamer, journalist, and always working on something exciting. I’m also the recipient of the Pause Super Connector Award (2020 and 2021), DELL Young Entrepreneur of the Year (2019), DELL Social Media Influencer of the Year (2019), Telstra Business Woman of the Year Finalist (2019), Finalist Esports personality of the year (2018), and many more.
