Code completion on steroids for Object Pascal

TMS Software Delphi  Components

At the end of June, Microsoft revealed its GitHub Copilot project. The Microsoft GitHub Copilot project is a sort of AI driven code completion on steroids. It’s both amazing and controversial at the same time and for sure generates a lot of debate among software developers. 

Regardless of the opinions, it is for sure an interesting enough technology for us to investigate and José Leon Serna, our chief architect of the TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code project, investigated if the Microsoft GitHub Copilot could have any meaning for us, Object Pascal developers. 

And surprisingly, it is already feasible to use the Copilot AI for Object Pascal developers from TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code as you can see and enjoy in this video from José: 

as well as this video, exploring next steps in AI assisted code completion:

If you signup for getting Copilot access, you could already experiment yourself with this new technology from TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code.

We are for sure living in interesting times with possible changes having an impact on our lives all the time on the horizon! 
We’re curious to hear what is your take on AI starting to play a role in the software development process?
