What’s GitHub Copilot
GitHub Copilot provides autocomplete-style suggestions from an AI pair programmer as you code. You can receive suggestions from GitHub Copilot either by starting to write the code you want to use, or by writing a natural language comment describing what you want the code to do.
Your code is yours. We follow responsible practices in accordance with our Privacy Statement to ensure that your code snippets will not be used as suggested code for other users of GitHub Copilot.

What can you do with GitHub Copilot?
Convert comments to code
GitHub Copilot uses a special version of GPT-3 that has been trained on a large body of public source code. It is as good at writing natural language as it is at writing code, so in fact it can complete your comments for you. In the example below, we first let it complete our explanation, and then, line by line, we tab through the code that does what we just said in English.
Create unit tests
An important use case of GitHub Copilot is to take some of the drudgery out of writing unit tests. Below, we already have an implementation of a function that computes the common prefix of two lists, and we want to test that. To do so, we import the unit test package, and then we start writing a test function to let Copilot generate the asserts which we accept just by hitting the Tab key.
Create a SQL query
What’s cooler than generating code in Go? Generating Go with embedded SQL! To make GitHub Copilot do that, just show it the schema as CREATE TABLE statements. And then, it nicely writes a query embedded in Go, converting the result to a Go class as you would have done yourself:
