Just returned from an inspiring experience at GitHub Galaxy 2024, where once again, I was amazed by the innovation in AI and the focus on the development experience from GitHub, a leader in the developer platform arena.

GitHub Galaxy is a global enterprise event tour exploring GitHubʼs blueprint for AI-powered development, productivity, and modernization.

My Key Takeaways:

🚀 Driving SDLC Innovation and Efficiency with AI:
Tools like GitHub Copilot are transforming the software development life cycle (SDLC). They offer more than just code autocompletion; they enhance the entire developer workflow through AI integration. Features such as Copilot Chat, Docs, and Pull Requests provide comprehensive solutions for approximately 75% of the daily tasks faced by software engineers. This creates a unified development experience that is augmented by the power of AI.

🔐 Integrate Security Seamlessly with DevSecOps:
With the help of AI, security is increasingly being shifted left in the development process, moving to the code creation stage rather than being a checkpoint before release. This not only helps reduce the costs associated with potential vulnerabilities but also embeds security practices as a fundamental part of the development process. This proactive approach is the right way forward.


We at Spryker have been using GitHub Copilot for over 9 months now and are truly excited about the features that are rolling out. We believe these advancements will continue to boost our engineering innovation rate and efficiency.

It’s thrilling to see how AI tools like GitHub Copilot, OpenAI API and ChatGPT enhance our development processes and push our capabilities forward. Stay tuned for more updates on how Spryker leverages different AI tools in R&D.
