The One a Day project I mentioned before was my second attempt at using ChatGPT to do something useful. I can’t talk about the first attempt, please don’t ask, very hush hush.
I’m happy to report it cranked out code not unlike what I would have if left to my own search + copy + paste devices. So, I understand why software professionals are skeptical. In its defense, it actually suggested using flask in the first iteration, but I asked dumb it down a bit. It gave me something simple, and I modified it a bit. In the end, I’d say ChatGPT cut the time in half on this tiny project. It’s on github if you care to judge.
