Join me for an engaging conversation with Josh Koenig, co-founder of Pantheon.io. With extensive experience on the agency and hosting side of WordPress, Josh provides an exciting look at the intersection of artificial intelligence and web development.
We delve into the transformative power of AI tools like ChatGPT, which he compares to having 1000 interns at your disposal, capable of handling the simple, repetitive tasks. We explore how machine learning might revolutionize tasks such as content migrations, as well as augmenting WordPress's Gutenberg interface.
However, Josh emphasizes that machine learning is not about replacing human tasks, but rather about automating tedious and repetitive work. This leaves room for developers to focus on the more strategic, critical thinking aspects of their roles. We also explore the limitations of these AI tools, and the potential challenges they may pose to the open source nature of WordPress.
Tune in for an engaging discussion on the current state of AI in web development, its potential, and what it means for the future of the industry. This is a conversation that will appeal to developers, tech founders, and anyone curious about the convergence of AI and web development.
