Microsoft's regular monthly update to Java on Visual Studio Code (May 2023) brings new features around performance improvement, the user experience and Spring Boot integration, among many others.
Easy-to-make tools can provide just about whatever functionality you need instantly with a three-stroke key combination.
So you've finally been plucked off the GitHub Copilot chat waitlist. Now what?
Uno Platform, which offers a framework for building cross-platform applications with .NET, announced a new version of its Visual Studio Code extension that adds mobile targeting.
VS Code Java update in April 2023 brings new features and enhancements for Maven, debugging, project explorer and Spring Boot.
StarCoder, a new open-access large language model (LLM) for code generation from ServiceNow and Hugging Face, is now available for Visual Studio Code, positioned as an alternative to GitHub Copilot.
Visual Studio Code v1.78 (April 2023 update) is out with a host of minor improvements, including two that involve colors.
Microsoft open sourced a Copilot Chat sample app that organizations can use as a blueprint for their own customized chatbots based on advanced generative AI tech.
"We at Codeium have removed GPL licensed code from our training data, guaranteeing peace of mind to our users."
It helps developers infuse advanced AI technology into their apps, including wildly popular generative AI systems like ChatGPT and GPT-4 from Microsoft partner OpenAI.
In-editor chat and a Chat view are available in a waitlisted technical preview.
A new tool that can generate code is being previewed in the Visual Studio Code Insiders channel seeks to ease the tedious data preparation process that data scientists need to go through to get good data for successful analysis projects.
Prompt engineering has recently become popularized with the advent of cutting-edge generative AI constructs based on the GPT-3 series of large language models (LLMs) created by Microsoft partner OpenAI.
In announcing the latest Visual Studio Code update last week, Microsoft said the new profiles functionality was one of the all-time most-requested Visual Studio Code features, allowing for unique configurations for different projects and workspaces.
With new generative AI tools shaking up the software development space, there are now more than 400 AI-infused extensions in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
Python, the dominant language for VS Code developers, just received a new update, along with a GitHub post that explains its popularity while also detailing how to enact an easter egg "inside joke" with a bit of code.
Microsoft's latest update to the opens-source-based Visual Studio Code editor features a raft of minor improvements, including improved IntelliSense for the popular Pylance language server for Python coding.
"Our new unit test generation capability uses cutting-edge AI technology to generate unit tests for your code automatically."
Developers continue to claim -- as they have for years -- that the "AI pair programmer" GitHub Copilot tool doesn't work well with IntelliSense, which is built in to Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.
GitHub has again upgraded the AI tech behind its Copilot "AI pair programmer," which reportedly already generates 61 percent of Java Code in editors where it's used and 46 percent across all languages.
"We've also added a new AI Tools in VS Code topic to the VS Code documentation that will help you get started with Copilot."
With ChatGPT being the first "It" tech in the cutting-edge AI space that regular people can play around with, it's no wonder that tools to use it are exploding in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
"We wondered how we could make editing your code feel as tactile and easy as paint with a brush in Photoshop."
"The Python Pulse will be a way for developers to interact with the teams behind the products."
Microsoft is continuing to push its Java tooling across its properties, with two main targets being Visual Studio Code and the Azure cloud.
