That’s right, the Coding world has moved one step ahead towards automation. OpenAI, backed by Microsoft and Microsoft owned Github’s jointly released Copilot is capable of understanding the basic human language and translating into computer-understandable code. Researchers at Microsoft and other institutions have been trying to teach computers to write code for decades. The concept has yet to go mainstream, at times because programs to write programs have not been versatile enough. Hope you are one of the lucky ones to have been granted access to the preview of Copilot.

As the name suggests, the tool is designed to work with a programmer and not independently, and can be used when working in a new language or framework, or while learning to code. GitHub’s Copilot is available as a Visual Studio Code extension. The extension sends comments and code to GitHub's Copilot service, which then uses OpenAI Codex to synthesize and offer suggestions to the user. Codex has been trained on terabytes of openly available code pulled from GitHub, as well as English language examples. According to the team, GitHub Copilot tries to understand the coder's intent and to generate the best code it can, but the code it suggests may not always work or even make sense and hence the code suggested by GitHub Copilot should be carefully tested, reviewed, and vetted, like any other code.

The need to google while coding in a new language is in danger of extinction with this massive development. This would also save time spent on debugging the code. The extension works well on Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, TypeScript, Ruby and Go (This isn’t the first project to try to automatically generate code to help programmers, the startup Kite pitches a very similar functionality, with availability on more than 16 code editors).

The code suggestions can be accepted, rejected, or edited according to the need of the programmer.  As of now, programmers are trying it for fun. Whether it gets adopted by professional programmers for real coding work is a doubt. While some may argue that Copilot adds cognitive load and breaks the flow by popping at unexpected moments, the value addition in terms of learning and the potential to automate is immense.

To use it to the fullest, one needs to fragment the code into parts or functions, inputting useful names for a function’s parameters, writing docstrings and comments in the process.

It is getting evident that Microsoft’s strategic investments (backing OpenAI, acquiring GitHub, creating VSCode) are coming together to create their products of the future.

As Bob Dylan so eloquently put it,

"The times they are a-changing"

For the Truck Driving Schools in Canada, this couldn’t be any truer. Intelligent automation allows trainers to focus more time on student-related priorities and dramatically enhances a school’s ability to respond, adapt and thrive in an ever-changing competitive landscape.

OVERVIEW

ShaunTDS is one of the top names in the Truck Training Industry in Canada which empowers its students to be professional truck drivers via its Air Brake Classes, AZ Melt Training and multiple other programs. Exponential growth in enrollments lead to operational redundancies and ..simply put...CHAOS!!

It was getting increasingly difficult to track the number of training hours of a student which is the most important parameter for the students while applying for the license.

Records, roll-calls and staff/duty were proving to be a major roadblock in the expansion strategy.

The digital transformation journey of ShaunTDS

It was initiated once SimbaQuartz's React and Java developers collaborated to create a school management system Web App:

Front end was created in React. Js

Back end developed in Java

This web app assists in the internal management of the school and resolves crucial administration pain points:

The goal was clear, the road to achieving it rather bumpy 🎢

SimbaQuartz came up with a marketing site built using webflow to automate the Lead Generation process.

  • Admissions tracker
  • Batch allotment
  • Class scheduler
  • Operations management
  • Tax management
  • Fee Management
  • Student tracker
  • Staff Management

The journey🚚 turned into a caravan...

SimbaQuartz’s marketing and graphic designing team pitched in to develop and execute the brand positioning and business development strategies by optimising Social Media and AdWords management, Optimisation and Branding.

ShaunTDS plans to get a resellable SAAS product developed from SimbaQuartz’s IT expertise to open up an additional stream of revenue. A mobile app for students is in the pipeline as well. 

This digital transformation has enabled the school to expand its presence at another location within a year of commencement of operations.
