GitHub announced GitHub Copilot AI pair programmer technical preview last year. Today, GitHub Copilot is now generally available to all developers for $10 USD per month or $100 USD/year. GitHub Copilot will also be available for students and maintainers of popular open source projects for free. If you are interested, you can check out the 60-day free trial.
With more than 1.2 million developers in our technical preview over the last 12 months, people who started using GitHub Copilot quickly told us it became an indispensable part of their daily workflows. – GitHub team
GitHub Copilot features:
- Get AI-based coding suggestions: Get code suggestions that match a project’s context and style conventions, and cycle through different options to decide what to accept, reject, or edit.
- Use your preferred environment: Integrate GitHub Copilot with popular editors, including Neovim, JetBrains IDEs, Visual Studio, and Visual Studio Code as an unobtrusive extension.
- Code confidently in unfamiliar territory: Code in new languages or try something new, and let GitHub Copilot suggest syntax and code in dozens of languages—so you can spend more time learning by doing.
GitHub Copilot will be available for companies later this year.
