As technology continues to advance rapidly, developers face increasing pressure to deliver more complex applications faster than ever before. To meet these demands, leading organizations are turning to artificial intelligence to boost developer productivity and velocity in this session session, Aaron & Andrew will demonstrate how RipeMetrics built an internal AI assistant that allows the development team to have natural conversations with key engineering resources —wikis, repositories, documentation, data, and web content.

The AI Assistant

The AI assistant leverages a conversational user interface, built on top of frameworks designed to simplify the creation of applications using large language models. This allows developers to get quick answers and focus on higher-value tasks. The presentation will outline the process for scoping requirements, choosing technologies, training models, and enhancing the assistant over time. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to quickly build a similar AI assistant that helps streamline developer workflows. They’ll gain practical tips on how to choose the right open-source libraries, integrate with internal systems, and overcome common challenges.

The Goal

The goal is for technology leaders to have a blueprint for boosting engineering productivity by embedding AI into their organizations’ software development lifecycle. Technologies covered include LangChain, Flowise, Chroma, OpenAI, and more.
