I just launched http://codebotai.com/ as an early demo site. CodeBot assists programmers in auto-generating skeleton (scaffolding) code from requirement specifications based on ML and can generate code in multiple programming languages(python, java etc.). I am looking for some feedback on how to model this as a product and who will be the first set of customers for a product like this. I am thinking freelancers and small dev shops as this product helps in reducing programming time and also minimize need of resources. Any feedback is highly appreciated.
Interesting idea, however, as an architect I can't clearly see how this will pan out, I tried a few things and the output doesn't really amount up to it.
That being said you are on to something, here is what I'll recommend, write it in such a way that the engine/framework can be attached to existing IDE's and them your ML works off single line statements.
Lets take a simple example, lets say I'm working on a project in Atom/VS/etc.., I can pull up your command line/interface and type in "a function to manage iterating through a loop in batches" or "a custom class to parse URL".
In short I think it will be helpful to work off small batches of code/snippets rather than a complete project. Most coding these days has to do with business rules as most developers just search/copy/paste from online or use a library/framework. To be able to say "accept an order and if promo exist check if promo is valid and then apply to order if it is at the item level and store in database" ML is just not there yet at least not without a massive amount of code from you.
I am non-technical. This fascinates me. You are the excel for coding. Ecell removed the painful part of ledgers with built in tools that allowed accountants and business planning to have a format and a receptacle to outline the base-information so they could then customize it for actual client needs.
Is this unique in the space?
The user interface could use a bit of work it looks a bit out of date.
You should also consider using a CDN to deliver the site as it took about 15 seconds for me to load the site. I tried to run a free audit for you to give you some useful insights and improvements but it was too slow for me here in Ireland so my audit tools wouldn't work.
The tool itself looks promising so keep up the great work!
I have checked the website it looks good. The auto-generating code thing is catchy.
