Chat GPT: How It's Helping Me Do More With Less as a Tech Lead

Matt Gill
By Matt Gill — March 24, 2023 -

When I was younger, I always dreamed that one day there would be a computer you could ask any question to and it would give you the right answer. I always thought that would be impossible, but here it is! Chat GPT, the large language model developed by OpenAI, is making that dream a reality.

As a Tech lead at Mention Me, my job involves managing projects, thinking through technical approaches and architectures, and communicating my ideas effectively. It's not always easy to keep track of everything, but Chat GPT has been a game-changer since its public launch.

What's great about Chat GPT is that it can help me break down large projects into smaller, more manageable chunks.

By chatting with Chat GPT conversationally, I can have it ask me questions until we've covered all the information that makes up the project and requirements. It can also help me to generate cards in a consistent format following our template, making it much easier for me to communicate my ideas clearly and consistently.

But Chat GPT isn't just a tool for project management and card writing. It's also been incredibly helpful for me when it comes to playing devil's advocate and thinking through technical approaches and architectures. For example, I recently had a disagreement with a colleague about how to deliver a new piece of functionality. The conversation was about delivering a feature that would only be used by 5% of our customer base, and Chat GPT helped us come up with a compromise that considered the benefits of both approaches.

It's been interesting to see how my skills as a developer translate into the world of natural language processing. I see myself as writing code for Chat GPT, it’s just that the programming language is English.

It's not a perfect tool, though. One thing to keep in mind is that it's limited to existing knowledge and may not always have the answer to a specific question. And let's face it, as amazing as it is, Chat GPT can't replace human judgement and expertise (yet!). It's also worth mentioning that there have been some concerns recently about language models like Chat GPT. For example, Bing has definitely had some teething problems implementing LLM!

Chat GPT has been a powerful tool for me in my work as a Tech lead. It's helped me to organise my thoughts, communicate my ideas more effectively, and make better-informed decisions. I'm excited to see where this technology will take us in the future, and I'm looking forward to continuing to explore the field of “prompt engineering”.
