Thoughts on Github Copilot 🤖

This article was originally published on my newsletter last week. I publish previous week's newsletter here on the blog. If you want to read these as soon as they are published, sign up for the newsletter!

Ahoy,

So Github Copilot was announced couple of weeks ago. I got into the waiting list as soon as it was announced and just the other week I finally got in.

I started to use it right away and after one week of using it I found some problems I kept running with it but also quite a few benefits that using it has.

I ended up making a video where I explain my thoughts on it. You can watch the video on my Youtube channel.

On the non-coding front, last week I mentioned that I was watching SEAL team on Netflix. Well, just yesterday I finished the last season so right now I am not watching anything.

I am actually glad that I'm not in the middle of binge watching any series, because I really want to concentrate more on reading.

I have always liked physical books but recently I have been leaning towards on buying a Kindle. I think it would make me read more, when I don't have to carry a book around and it would be more effortless to read with Kindle than from physical books.

So we'll see if I end up buying one, but until that, I will be reading the physical books I have in my book shelf that have been waiting to be read for too long. I am going to start by reading Kevin Mitnick's Ghost in the Wires. It has been sitting on my shelf for too long.

If you have any good book recommendations or if you have experience using Kindle, just hit reply on this email. I would love to hear from you!

That's all for this week!

Cheers,
Tuomo
