Empowering all developers with AI

As we consider how to improve the developer experience with AI ORG , 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 PERSON , a developer with Cerebral Palsy ORG , realizes his potential using AI.

Here are a few must-see sessions that showcase how AI can empower all developers:
