Why every developer needs an AI buddy
The changes occurring in the software development industry over the last decade seem at times overwhelming. If low/no-code development had promised a change, the new era of AI assisted development is certainly not here to play games. There is an unavoidable shift occurring, but what exactly does this mean for the everyday developer?
It is somewhat known that the average developer is overworked due to the dimension and complexity that software systems have taken over the years. We’ve previously talked about how software is eating the world, and how this has led to advancements in programming tools (link para último artigo do blog). This may, however, lead to the question “are machines eating the world?”. The post-apocalyptic idea that machines could replace humans is still farfetched.
In this case, technology isn’t here to replace developers but rather to serve them. It’s a reinforcement allowing developers to program at a much faster rate without jeopardizing the quality of their work. This enables the once impractical concept of pair-programming to become a reality, boosting development and assuring quality.
For those who use Q&A websites such as Stackoverflow these tools are simply taken a step further with results at your fingertips, live, whilst you’re programming. And if you’re wondering why these tools facilitate pair-programming, then here’s why: it’s your artificial peer who needs no employee benefits.
K.Explorer can auto-complete entire functions producing the most accurate suggestions while you type. It works do fine because it is trained on millions of Morphis Tech’s own lines of code and on billions of open-source lines of code. It gives you all the right results so that you don’t have to interrupt development to look for answers. But there’s more, when the problem is way too complex, search it in natural language and the results will come back just as you need them. Find out more about K.explorer here.
