WHERE THE DRY POWDER AT?

Is VC investing returning to its pre-2022 heights? Probably not, but talks about a possible tender offer that would value OpenAI at $29B might shake things up. 

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT
How developers are using AI

While many fear AI will steal their jobs, developers don’t seem to worry about it as much. In fact, we continue seeing developers build new tools that use AI to make their jobs easier and more productive.  

Github’s Copilot is getting better and smarter, and Replit recently launched its own AI coding tool, Ghostwriter. Here’s a rundown of other AI developer tools you might’ve missed:

HTTPie uses AI to help you interact with APIs. You can describe a request using natural language (like “Fetch last release details of httpie/desktop”), and HTTPie generates the request that you can then save and use. You can also ask the AI to generate an HTTP request by describing its low-level components like the URL, headers, and body. 

terminalGPT is a chatbot for your terminal that can understand and respond to various topics and questions in real time. 

AI Query generates SQL queries using basic English.

AI Code Reviewer is like having a personal tutor for coding. The tool lets you know when something doesn’t look right with your code, as well as allows you to ask questions.
