Hey there, fellow techies! As a CSA-E at Microsoft, I’m always on the lookout for ways to make my life easier. And let’s face it, keeping up with all the blog posts can be a daunting task, am I right?
Well, one day I got fed up with missing out on important announcements and updates. That’s when I had an idea: create a script that would monitor a list of Microsoft RSS feeds and have AI write me a quick summary about each article. Genius, right?
Now, I’m not much of a Python expert, but its never too late for an old dog to learn new tricks. With the help of Bing Chat and ChatGPT and Co-pilot, I got to work. Within a day or so, I had a working script up and running on GitHub. I was blown away by how easy it was to use GitHub Copilot in VScode. Seriously, it’s like having an AI coding buddy by your side!
But I didn’t stop there. I continued to refine my code using the chatbot and even created a website that others could subscribe to. And that’s how https://subscribe.ailonalab.com came to be!
I really believe that AI tools like these are a game-changer. They allow us to focus on the big ideas instead of getting bogged down by technical details. But hey, if you’re a tech whiz, the sky’s the limit!
…or something like this:
