This presentation delves into the transformative potential of generative AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enhance the developer experience, with a particular focus on expediting the onboarding process for new developers. By leveraging foundation models available on Amazon Bedrock, we can seamlessly connect code repositories with Amazon Bedrock Knowledge Bases, facilitating natural language interactions and smooth integration for new team members. Additionally, we will explore the capabilities of autonomous software engineers, including Amazon Q for Developers and other open-source autonomous software engineering frameworks that can be deployed on AWS, which enable the automatic implementation of new features directly within project repositories. This session aims to demonstrate how these advanced generative AI tools can significantly improve productivity, streamline workflows, and foster a more efficient and effective development environment.
