I know I have a checkered past with the Developer community. Back in the old days they could do some pretty awful things to my beloved on-prem SharePoint servers with their incessant BINing and GACing things. Fortunately for all of us (including those defenseless servers) those days are behind us.
So, I just got off this Microsoft 365 & Power Platform Development Community call, and boy, do I have some cool stuff to share with you. I got the chance to show off this neat trick I've been working on - using GitHub Copilot and ChatGPT (or any AI you're into) to give your PowerShell scripting a serious boost.
You're probably thinking, "AI and PowerShell, really?" But stick with me here. It's like having a co-pilot for your coding. Like someone smarter than you, looking over your shoulder, and there if you have questions. It's there to help you out, make things smoother, and let's be honest, who doesn't want to feel a bit like Tony Stark talking to JARVIS while coding?
During the demo, I took everyone on a little tour of how you can get GitHub and Copilot and ChatGPT into the mix with your PowerShell development routine. It's all about using AI to help with the heavy lifting - coding, debugging, repetitive tasks, and even the dreaded documentation. I'm telling you, this is next-level stuff, and we're just scratching the surface of what AI can do for us.
But hey, don't just take my word for it. Give it a whirl! Play around with adding some AI into your PowerShell development and see how it goes. I used ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot for the demo, but you can pick any AI you're comfortable with.
That's it from me for now. Keep an eye out for more cool AI posts.
