GitHub Copilot is Generally Available

GitHub Copilot is now generally available to developers. GitHub Copilot uses OpenAI to suggest and complete code or functions in real-time in your editor.

Thomas Dohmke writes in the GitHub Blog:

With GitHub Copilot, for the first time in the history of software, AI can be broadly harnessed by developers to write and complete code. Just like the rise of compilers and open source, we believe AI-assisted coding will fundamentally change the nature of software development, giving developers a new tool to write code easier and faster so they can be happier in their lives.

GitHub Copilot is free to use for students and maintainers of popular open-source projects.
