AI For The Developer

5 Jun

Microsoft has released a preview extension of their IntelliCode AI developer functionality here.

IntelliCode is a set of AI-assisted capabilities that improve developer productivity with features like contextual IntelliSense, inference for code styles, and focused reviews for your pull requests (PRs.).

At the moment this is a preview extension for Visual Studio 2017, but the team are looking into integrating this functionality directly into Visual Studio in a future release.

I’ve been using the extension for a few hours and it does seem to help with the little code I’ve authored, but it’s too early for me to say if this will become an essential part of my toolkit, but initial impressions are promising.
