In the rapidly evolving landscape of software development, Large Language Models (LLMs) for code have emerged as a groundbreaking tool for code completion, synthesis and analysis. In this talk, we will explore the current developments of these models, understand how they are trained, and how they can be leveraged with custom codebases. Additionally, we will address potential risks and challenges, including privacy concerns, using insights from projects like the BigCode initiative and StarCoder models.
