Integrating AI into your development activities can be intimidating, but in reality, it is pretty easy—it just takes some work. Learn how to directly apply AI to real-world development problems and get some hands-on experience using AI with a testing focus—without needing a Ph.D. in computer science. Jennifer and Jeremias will share a wide survey of all the different ways AI is applied to software today. Whether you are just AI-curious or you want to reap the benefits of AI-based software approaches today, this workshop is a must to get an understanding of where software is headed in an AI-first world. Bring your individual software problems to learn how AI can apply, and get ready for the future of software.
