It has been over a year since OpenAI introduced ChatGPT and brought the power of AI and large language models (LLMs) to the average consumer. But we could argue that introducing APIs for seamlessly integrating large language models into apps developed by companies and independent hackers all over the world can be the true game changer in the long term. Developers are having heated discussions about how we can utilize this technology to develop truly useful apps that provide real value instead of just copying what OpenAI does. We want to contribute to this discussion by showing you how we think about developing autonomous agents at profiq. But first a bit of background.

Deploying and Scaling Elixir Apps: Heroku vs Fly.io

Phoenix is a popular Elixir web framework for building scalable, high-performance web applications. If you are building a large-scale Phoenix-based application platform, then you would most likely have a DevOps person or a DevOps team to deploy it in GCP or AWS with a Kubernetes orchestration engine. If you’re developing your app on your own or within a small team of developers, however, such cloud platforms and tools are unnecessarily sophisticated and complex for your needs. In this article, we will explore and compare two platforms that make the daunting…

Innovation is at the core of Profiq's mission. Arguably, the most innovative development in technology recently is ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI. In an earlier article, we explored OpenAI’s Codex model, which we used for code generation and editing. In this follow-up article, we share our experience leveraging OpenAI’s models programmatically via its API, for creating a plugin for Jetbrains IDEs. Querying OpenAI from the IDE We’ve been using ChatGPT from the browser in various ways to aid with our daily software development and QA. When the interaction with ChatGPT involves…

Can OpenAI write programs on its own?

If you've been following the news in the IT world, you’ve surely heard about OpenAI. For the past few months, this company has made headlines with its excellent AI language models. OpenAI is best-known for ChatGPT, a user-friendly, chatbot-like tool that’s being used to simplify the content creation process. Beside ChatGPT, their offering also used to include the now deprecated Codex API, which served not only for code generation, but also for manipulating existing code. Some companies already use a variant of the Codex model in their tools. For example,…

An API, or Application Programming Interface, is a set of rules and protocols for building software and applications. It specifies how software components should interact and allows for communication between different systems. APIs can be used to allow third-party developers to access certain features or data of an application or service, enabling them to build their own applications that integrate with it. Tech startups can use APIs in a variety of ways to expand their reach, improve their products and services, and increase their revenue. APIs enable startups to leverage…

Designing REST APIs with Stoplight

A well-designed API is both an important business driver and a must if you want to split your software product into smaller modules. Whether you decide to deploy your app as a set of microservices or separate the client-side rendered frontend from the backend, you need to think about how the individual components will interact with each other. Externally, a high-quality API can be a huge selling point. This is especially true in the B2B world; letting customers access your service programmatically can help them improve their products or create…

We recently hosted a Peer 2 Peer Tech Leader roundtable discussion in the Rocky Mountains. The group is composed of engineering leaders from a wide variety of software tech companies ranging from smaller 4-6 person engineering teams at startups to engineering leaders at FANG companies, and organizations in the government sector responsible for over 400 engineers. The primary goal for the roundtables is to provide a forum to network with peers, to share experiences, and to learn from each other. For each meeting a discussion topic is agreed upon -…

The first one: Serenity: Changing the world of senior care

Lauded by customers as a “communication lifesaver” and “a game changer”, one of our clients, Colorado-based Serenity App Inc, is making a big impact in the senior care space with its cutting-edge platform, Serenity Engage. Serenity Engage streamlines and protects communication between the families of seniors in residential and hospice care and their often multiple care providers. We are excited to work closely with Rob Pinna, Serenity Engage’s VP of Engineering, and develop this product from its foundation. We've enjoyed building it using event-driven architecture, with React and Redux powering…
