GitHub Copilot Chat - Power User example

Learn how I use GitHub Copilot Chat to my benefit and see the end to end flow on creating a script to call into the GitHub API.

I’m showing my prompts and the results, as well where Copilot failed to help me in one go. With spening more time on my propmt up front, I managed to get a much better result that with the first attempt!


In this video I show how I use the chat feature to let Copilot write an entire script for me in the form of calling an API (in a loop on a certain input file), summarize the results based on the response, and calculate both an average inside the loop (per item) as well as an overall average.
