Amazon announced a preview of an automated coding assistance tool called CodeWhisperer at its re:Mars conference in Las Vegas on Thursday.
CodeWhisperer is available to those who received an invite this week through the AWS IDE Toolkit, a plugin for code editors to help write AWS applications.
In a blog post, Jeff Barr, chief evangelist for AWS, said CodeWhisperer’s goal is to make software developers more productive.
“CodeWhisperer will continually examine your code and comments and provide you with syntactically correct recommendations,” Barr said. “The recommendations are synthesized based on your coding style and variable names and are not just snippets.”
