GitHub Copilot

GitHub Copilot is an innovative, AI-powered tool designed to make coding faster and more efficient. By drawing on the context of your code and comments, it can suggest entire functions or individual lines of code in an instant, significantly reducing the amount of work required. It is compatible with a range of integrated development environments (IDEs), including Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio, Neovim, and the JetBrains suite of IDEs.

GitHub Copilot is powered by OpenAI Codex, a sophisticated generative language model developed by OpenAI. This technology has been pre-trained on a diverse range of natural language text and source code drawn from publicly available sources, including public repositories on GitHub.

GitHub Copilot can allow or block suggestions matching public code. This policy can be configured by the organization owner in the organization settings. If an organization member is part of multiple organizations with different policies, the most restrictive policy is used.

Your code will not be shared with other users. GitHub follows responsible practices in accordance with their Privacy Statement to ensure that neither your Prompts nor Suggestions will be shared or used as suggested code for other users of GitHub Copilot.


The pricing for GitHub Copilot is set at $19.00 per user, per month. If you're part of a GitHub organization, the organization owner will be responsible for managing licenses for all users within the organization. Users will only require a single license, even if they are members of multiple organizations and use GitHub Copilot for all related activities on the platform.
