New research from GitHub takes a look at Copilot Chat’s impact on authoring and reviewing code. The company conducted a study where 36 developers used GitHub Copilot and Copilot Chat to author and review code – it’s obviously a small sample size, in part due to how new the tool is, though early results are interesting. In short, the quality of code authored and reviewed was better across the board, solidifying GitHub’s vision that embedding AI in the development workflows provides a better developer experience. Sharing some of the main findings:

  • 85% of developers felt more confident in their code quality when authoring code with GitHub Copilot and GitHub Copilot Chat
  • Code reviews were more actionable and completed 15% faster than without GitHub Copilot Chat
  • 88% of developers felt less frustrated and more focused in their IDE with GitHub Copilot Chat
