Amazon has made its AI-powered code assistant tool, named “CodeWhisperer“ publicly available. This tool provides prompt suggestions to help users prepare their code. It can be used to prepare code in Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) like “Visual Studio Code.” CodeWhisperer supports programming languages such as Python, Java, C, C++, and C#. It can also identify errors in the code and locate the relevant training data from open-source to help correct them. Additionally, the tool has a “security scanning” feature that can help identify weaknesses in the code.
Developers can create a free account to take advantage of the tool. Amazon had made this tool available to customers of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) last year, but now it is free for everyone. It is estimated that Amazon’s move could impact the market of other AI-powered code assistants, like Microsoft’s Copilot, which costs $10 per month or $100 per year. Recently, Microsoft has also made its AI-powered tool, Copilot, available for free for students and well-known open-source project developers.
