Video: Using Github Copilot to write Hugging Face code

And now for something completely different! With a few hours to kill in the speaker room, I decided to take a stab at writing Hugging Face code with Github Copilot. No speech on this one, just a light rock music track, I hope you’ll enjoy it.

This video was recorded in one take, with very little editing (kernel crashes, etc.). I didn’t script anything to make Copilot look good or bad. I just opened VS Code, picked a simple example, and played ball. IMHO Copilot did very well. Some suggestions definitely felt like it was reading my mind.
