What is Github Copilot? Will it take over your jobs? Today I will answer all your questions on GitHub copilot. I will tell you what Github Copilot is and everything you need to know about GitHub copilot as a developer.
Well, I have not used GitHub copilot because it is in a technical preview which means it is just given for some developers but I have done some research and read about it and I have found out what it is, what are the benefits and non benefits for developers.
Github copilot is not yet released so if you want to know the best code editor then you can read this article – Best code editor for coders and programmers.
What Is Github Copilot ?
Github Copilot is an AI (Artificial Intelligence) based software developed by Github it is currently in a technical preview which means it is just provided for some developers. It is powered by open ai, which is an AI company.
So what does it provide? You can use the GitHub copilot extension in vs code then you just need to write a brief comment about a function or method you want to create. The GitHub copilot will automatically create the function or method you want.
If you want to see some previews and know more about GitHub copilot then you can visit their official page here – Github copilot.
Will Github Copilot take over your jobs?
I don’t think so, but for some. When we are creating a website or an application we need to think logically, collaborate with other developers and many others think AI can’t do that but in the future, it can.
Now some developers can lose their jobs because they don’t write their code; they just copy and paste the code from StackOverflow. A real developer should be able to design and build the architecture of a whole application.
So if you are a developer who writes code, solves code problems, and knows what they are writing and what it does then you don’t need to worry about GitHub copilot. You are completely safe.
How does Github Copilot Works?
Well, I have said that it is an Artificial intelligence application. Many developers don’t know about Artificial intelligence so they take it the wrong way. An AI model is trained with a lot of data then it gives a result by analyzing the data.
So GitHub copilot is trained on millions of lines of codes it has seen those codes so when we write a comment it understands what it means then it provides the function.

It is not a autocomplete software
You may say that in vs code I get code snippets that auto-completes the code. GitHub Copilot is powered by Codex which is a new AI system created by OpenAI. GitHub Copilot understands significantly more context than most code assistants.
So, whether it’s in a docstring, comment, function name, or the code itself, GitHub Copilot uses the context you’ve provided and synthesizes code to match.

You know now what GitHub copilot is and it will not take over your jobs. You can use GitHub copilot to improve your productivity and efficiency. I don’t know much about GitHub copilot because it is new. I have told you what I have found.
