From Myth to Legend: How Generative AI Can Supercharge Productivity to Create 10x Developers

Summit Producer's Highlight

Gautam and Serdar at Uber explore whether Generative AI can match the productivity of a “10x developer”. They discuss results using Generative AI for tasks like refactoring, maintaining tests, incident management, and documentation enhancement. Their analysis reveals that while Co-Pilot and other tools make developers feel more productive, they produce only an average of 1-2 lines of usable code.
