Is AI Generated Code Really Useful?
Software developers love problem-solving and creativity. Developers find it more satisfying to think about what design patterns to use, or how to architect a solution that implements a particular logic, drives an outcome, or solves a problem as opposed to the rote memorization of syntax or ordering of parameters.
When using AI code generators (e.g., Copilot or ChatGPT) developers tend to “stay in the flow”. They spend less time browsing reference documents and online forums like StackOverflow to find solutions. Instead, they prompt their preferred AI tool with a text description and get code that is mostly correct.
The future of software development is fundamentally changing as we speak!
