- A developer’s guide to prompt engineering and LLMs
Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) using large language models (LLMs) is transforming technology. GitHub has harnessed LLMs to create applications like GitHub Copilot, which completes code by predicting the next word or token based on vast amounts of public data. However, LLMs may generate incorrect information and learn new tasks not in their training data. To utilize LLMs effectively, developers need to engineer proper prompts, providing context and relevant snippets. GitHub Copilot's prompt engineering pipeline gathers context, selects relevant code snippets, and injects them into the document for the model to generate accurate completions.
