On top of all the Visual Studio announcements at Ignite 2019 in Orlando today, Microsoft also shared some notable improvements to Visual Studio IntelliCode, which uses AI to offer intelligent suggestions that improve code quality and productivity.
IntelliCode now supports whole-line completions and features dynamic refactoring detection.
This is a continuation of Microsoft’s strategy of applying AI “to the entire application developer lifecycle.”
IntelliCode is trained on over 14,000 public code repositories to understand how APIs are used.
But Amanda Silver, a director of Microsoft’s developer division, told VentureBeat that IntelliCode can now learn from your own code, too.
“In addition to learning from the public repos on GitHub, we’ll also be able to learn from keystrokes as you type,” Silver told VentureBeat.
