An AI pair programmer whose job it is to provide developers a series of support functions including suggesting codes in the editor and autocompleting instructions.

If you’d like to learn more about it, Jan Schwoebel covers this in his blog “GitHub’s New ‘Copilot’ Feature Is A Game-Changer If You’re a Developer”. In his blog he writes,

Using Copilot is simple. As you start writing code in either Go/NodeJS/Typescript or Python, it will give you small previews of code snippets. You can even get full functions written by AI. All you need to do is add a comment explaining what this next block of code is supposed to do.
