hmm, i’m not sure i agree with this, i’d say i’m just below senior in terms of js and in my experience it seems to resolve some complex calculations very well, eg just recently, it perfectly calculated the ratio variables needed to distribute a canvas texture perfectly onto a 3D sprite from a variable length text input, as well as calculate the scale of the sprite so the text always fills 100% width of the sprite, in a very clean and sophisticated way… baring in mind i did feed it the function of around 80 lines i had already written to generate the canvas and update the sprite texture…
@RonaldGRuckus the links you’ve shared are really interesting, thanks for dropping those into the convo, i’ll have to look into these!
Well, i am “way beyond senior” and here in these forums I can easily spot ChatGPT generated crap-code related to the OpenAI API.
Sure, if you ask for a method that is a (static) method which has been around for ages then you can get lucky; but anything more complex which depends on changing and upgrading libs is full of deprecated code.
i code professionally and use CoPilot daily to save keystrokes : but it is more entertaining than accurate.
Having said that, I bought a yearly CoPilot subscription because of the keystrokes saved: and its fun to have a psychotic AI auto-completing nonsense half the time.
To avoid hallucinations from the LLM, you need to use a framework like LangChain to break the input into things suitable for the LLM and things suitable for the calculations to then synthesize the correct response.
oof, i never got into it, i love to code manually just to keep wpm up
