Same! Just started using it 2 weeks ago and really like it. So no hard feelings 🙂
No one uses it outside of Google, but they actually have this in Chat and it was great https://support.google.com/chat/answer/12918975?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop
Frens is being built by active Farcaster users and offers token-gated chats and FC integrations so it seems like a cool use case to help them test it out and take advantage of those features (like native cast embedding and profile linking)
Agreed, I start with GPT-4 if I'm in uncharted waters because it'll give me 60% good functions or sometimes entire files, and then I can manually fix or update through conversation with it, leaving copilot to help with smaller iterations and unit tests (which I've had great luck with)
Going to @farcon? Join our chat on @frens - instructions for getting set up on iOS or Android (💜) are at https://app.frens.lol/farcon or AOL keyword "Frens"
I agree; anyone who says it's already happened everywhere is full of it. But I think it's starting now. My experience is that I'm able to write a ton more code than I was a year ago (pre-copilot) and I'm spending less time writing it (I manage a team now and was an IC a year ago)
@purpler thinks it's the @purplest
A lot of that time not coding isn't necessary for everyone. Copilot lets more experienced devs focus on architecture and optimization without needing as many junior devs to help. Other AI tools are accelerating the career development of junior devs. I think the end result is smaller eng teams doing more.
I just made myself use it for a while, including making myself use macros so then I'd miss macros when I wasn't using it. Eventually it became natural
This is really cool!
This is cool.

Haha no no, just one I think is really excellent for learning from others' experiences. This guy spends his whole life reading books about founders and then provides entertaining and concise summaries of them, cross-referencing them like crazy.
Not sure what messed up that cast but here's the second link: https://pca.st/episode/3210bb67-89f7-4676-a3e2-bdf02d1070c0
I haven't listened to all of them, but this one was pretty great and outside of my usual interest: https://pca.st/episode/dcdd2aa9-2edf-42fd-b749-a304224a934c." target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://pca.st/episode/dcdd2aa9-2edf-42fd-b749-a304224a934c. This pod with the host is a great intro and how I got into it: https://pca.st/episode/dcdd2aa9-2edf-42fd-b749-a304224a934c
Always a good time to plug https://founders.simplecast.com/

I had a good routine of going to the gym 3x/week after taking my kid to school in the morning. Now I have my dumbbells in the basement by the laundry so I do sets when doing laundry which is frequently. And I run right after waking when I don't feel completely dead, which right now is only about once a week.
Yes, pre-latest child. Since then I've been content with an infrequent run and dumbbells at home but I hope to get back to a normal schedule this summer.
The only undocumented issue we've encountered was the downtime weekend before last. We haven't been using their API long enough to know what their usual uptime is, but hopefully that was anomalous!
I don't think there's any hidden problems; it's just worth doing a thorough review of each API you're going to rely on and check the docs to make sure you know what you're in for and that whatever library you choose to use supports the APIs you need and that you're happy to pay for what you need.
