AutoPilot: Navigating the Future of Open Source Development with AI

Check Reference

As the world grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, the era of remote work and newfound time savings led me to embark on a freelancing journey. While Node.js remained my trusted companion for backend development, a common challenge emerged—wasting valuable hours on project setup and crafting CRUD APIs.

Fast forward to 2022, where I joined HacktoberFest as a maintainer and open-sourced a folder structure template to aid developers. Yet, it was the dawn of AI in 2023 that inspired me to envision a future where AI could automate basic CRUD API creation with remarkable precision and speed.

This vision culminated in AutoPilot, a tool that seamlessly integrates the power of TiDB with the efficiency of AI, empowering developers to bring their ideas to life effortlessly.

With AutoPilot, you can create a fully equipped repository, complete with TiDB support and CRUD APIs, in under three minutes. Imagine the possibilities—spending less time on mundane tasks and more time on innovating by writing the complex API's.

In this talk, I want to take the audience on a deep dive into the AutoPilot story. They'll discover how we seamlessly integrated with GitHub, and leveraged the OpenAI API to create this game-changing tool.

But the journey doesn't end here. I'll also unveil our ambitious roadmap  which would include features like AI-driven test case generation, multi-language support, and in-depth analytics.

This would present an excellent opportunity for individuals to take their first steps into open source development, making a meaningful impact on AutoPilot and eventually the wider developer community.

The talk would explore the future of open-source development, where AutoPilot serves as a guiding star, leading the way to a more efficient, accessible, and innovative landscape for starting a new backend project.

Note : The github repo would be made public on October 1 as part of the  Hacktoberfest 2023. Some minor cleanup work is ongoing in the codebase for making the whole Open Source journey of contributing to it's codebase streamlined.
