Microsoft has announced the general availability of GitHub to all developers for USD 10/month or USD 100/year. The AI-pair programming tool that suggests code in your editor will be free to use for verified students and maintainers of popular open-source projects.

Last year, Microsoft made GitHub Copilot available for technical preview. With GitHub Copilot, AI can be broadly harnessed by developers to write and complete code. Just like the rise of compilers and open source, it is believed that AI-assisted coding will fundamentally change the nature of software development, giving developers a new tool to write code easier and faster.

GitHub Copilot distils the collective knowledge of the world’s developers into an editor extension that suggests code in real-time, to help users stay focused on what matters most: building great software.

Upon typing code or comments, GitHub Copilot suggests the next line of code. It can also suggest complete methods, boilerplate code, whole unit tests, and even complex algorithms.

More than 1.2 million developers have used GitHub Copilot so far. In files where it’s enabled, nearly 40 percent of code is being written by GitHub Copilot in popular coding languages, like Python. That’s creating more time and space for developers to focus on solving bigger problems and building even better software.

GitHub Copilot is available for a free 60-day trial. For more details, Click here.
