VES is an AI-powered coding tutor built into Visual Studio Code as an extension. We are dedicated to democratizing access to coding education and empowering students with the latest technology. Our platform uses GPT-3, the latest and most advanced AI language model, to provide students with personalized and interactive coding lessons.
Intelligent code suggestions: GPT-3 can suggest improvements to existing code, such as more efficient algorithms or better syntax.
Chatbot: The extension can use GPT-3 to answer questions about coding concepts and provide personalized feedback on code.
Code explanations: The extension can use GPT-3 to explain code in natural language, making it easier for new coders to understand the code.
Documentation: The extension can use GPT-3 to generate links to documentation for a given coding concept. For example, you can ask, "What is the documentation for foo?"
Code generation: The extension can use GPT-3 to generate code based on a description of the desired functionality. For example, you can ask, "How do I create a function that adds two numbers?"
Interactive coding challenges: The extension can use GPT-3 to generate interactive coding challenges that reinforce course concepts and help learners practice coding skills.
