You Are the Pilot: Getting Better with Code Gen AI Tools

Presented by: Sean Wedig
Time: Friday, Jan. 12, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

You might have asked yourself - "Self, what's all this hubub about AI tools for programmers? Am I going to lose my job?" and you might have answered, "I don't know, self. I haven't even really played with any AI code generation tools. There are so many tools, I wouldn't even know where to start."

Or maybe you've said, "Yeah, these code gen tools seem exciting in a glossy corporate demo, but have you tried using a chat interface to _actually_ develop software? It's a nightmare!"

If those sound like you, then you should come to this talk! We've rolled out AI tools for all engineers at our company, and we've refined usage to get the most out of them. I'll demo several recommended AI tool workflows, deliver tips on effectively using these tools, and discuss how you can get started with HUGE productivity gains as a software engineer! (And maybe - expand your impact and roll the tools out more broadly at your company!)

It's the age of the machine! Take advantage of it!
