With the advancement of Artificial intelligence technologies, it’s time to reassess AI’s role in our day-to-day software engineering practices. As an experienced software engineer and AI enthusiast, I am thrilled to announce the launch of my new book – “The Last Mile of AI in Software Engineering: Charting the Impact of AI on Everyday Coding Practices.”
In this book, I delve into the practicalities of integrating AI, specifically Large Language Models (LLMs), into various stages of the software development lifecycle. The aim is not to provide another tutorial or guide on using AI tools but to question their integration, evaluate their practical efficiency, and understand their implications in real-world scenarios.
From the perspective of a new joiner in a tech team to the vantage point of a CTO at a startup, this book explores the journey of AI through different roles in the software engineering landscape. Each perspective is carefully analyzed to make sense of AI’s place in software engineering, its potential benefits, challenges, and how to mitigate the risks involved.
In “The Last Mile of AI in Software Engineering,” you will find thought-provoking discussions on various topics, including but not limited to:
- Measuring the Value Added by LLMs
- Handling Codebase Stability with Evolving Framework Versions
- Autonomous Delivery Challenges
- The Potential of LLMs in Appraisal Metrics
- Scrutinizing Daily Engineering Challenges
Whether you’re a software developer, tech lead, project manager, product manager, or even a CTO, this book offers something to anyone involved in software development. The book invites you to scrutinize your current practices, assess your tools, and ponder Artificial intelligence’s impact on your work.
“The Last Mile of AI in Software Engineering” is now available on Amazon. I look forward to your feedback and am excited about the stimulating discussions this book will trigger. Let’s navigate the complex and fascinating world of AI in software engineering together.
Stay tuned for more updates and extracts from the book in the upcoming blog posts. Happy reading!
