Coding in SQL, Python, VBA, JQuery and OfficeScript using AI tools
Part seven of an eight-part series of blogs
One of the immediate and obvious ways to use AI tools is to boost your productivity as a programmer. This blog shows how you can use ChatGPT 4 and Google's Bard to write programs in SQL, Python, VBA, JQuery and Office Script (probably the 5 languages Wise Owl use most).
ChatGPT came up with a nice concise answer to my question:
I particularly appreciate the notes on how this function works, and even a tip for how to get at my browser's development tools!
By contrast, here's how Bard responded to my question:
A longer answer than for ChatGPT, although as we've seen this doesn't necessarily make it a better one!
What I like about this answer is that it gives me a code snippet to try, so that I can test out whether it's correct. Here's the output this program gave when I tried it on an HTML page:
The first two lines are the original table; the second two lines are the unordered HTML list built up by the Bard function.
i think this is the only example where I prefer the Bard code, although a purist would argue it doesn't quite do what it's asked (the Bard version searches a table for elements with a given class name, whereas the ChatGPT one searches individual cells as requested).
