Will Generative AI replace developers? No, it won’t, but developers who know how to use it in their daily work will likely replace developers who don’t. How could you leverage Generative AI tools, like ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot, to write better software faster? This session presents how to use Generative AI tools to transform software development, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. We will give some demos using a coding copilot to write Java applications. After this session, you will be able to delegate all the tedious development tasks to Generative AI so that you can focus on all the exciting stuff in software development!
