Empowering all developers with AI
As we consider how to improve the developer experience with AI, we work to include upper case “A” Accessibility for developers with disabilities. However, we are also excited about the lowercase “a” accessibility aspect of an AI-powered developer experience that lowers barriers and democratizes coding. As a result, more developers with disabilities have the opportunity to work at the cutting edge of our discipline and realize the benefits of AI-powered gains in developer productivity and happiness. They also have the opportunity to leverage AI in unique and personal ways. For example, Anton Mirhorodchenko , a developer with Cerebral Palsy , realizes his potential using AI.
Here are a few must-see sessions that showcase how AI can empower all developers:
