Have you ever wished for a coding assistant that could help you write code faster, reduce errors, and improve your overall productivity? In this article, I’ll share my journey and experiences with GitHub Copilot, a coding companion, and how it has boosted productivity. The article is specifically focused on IntelliJ IDE which we use for building Java Spring-based microservices.
Six months ago, I embarked on a journey to explore GitHub Copilot, an AI-powered coding assistant, while working on Java Spring Microservices projects in IntelliJ IDEA. At first, my experience was not so good. I found the suggestions it provided to be inappropriate, and it seemed to hinder rather than help development work. But I decided to persist with the tool, and today, reaping some of the benefits, there is a lot of scope for improvement.
