Welcome to Copilot Adventures! This series of coding adventures is all about learning new concepts and languages by using GitHub Copilot to help you write code. Let’s get started!
Visual Studio and Copilot
VS Code and Copilot
To get started, enter the “adventure arena” by clicking the button below. This will create a GitHub Codespace that you can work in. Once it loads select the Create codespace button.
NOTE: You can use 60 hours of GitHub Codespaces for free each month.
If you’d prefer, you can clone the repo and run locally:
git clone https://github.com/microsoft/copilotadventures
Pre-Reqs: Basic programming language knowledge is helpful.
If you’re new to GitHub Copilot, need to install the extensions, and want to learn how to get started using it, start with the Warmup Adventure.
Once you’ve completed the warmup adventure and have the extensions installed, choose another GitHub Copilot adventure from the list below:
Read Your Copilot Adventure description, the high-Level tasks to perform, and the GitHub Copilot hints to help you write your code.
If you’d like to share your solution with others, perform the following steps:
Use the following naming convention for the issue title.
Solution for [Name of Your Adventure]
[Name of Your Adventure] with the adventure name you chose to solve (example:
The Legendary Duel of Stonevale).
Once you’ve completed your first adventure, try it again but this time use GitHub Copilot to complete the adventure using a language that’s new to you. For example, if you normally write code in C#, use Copilot to help you solve the adventure using Python or another language you’d like to learn more about.
Do you have a copilot adventure story/puzzle you’d like to submit for others to go through? We’d love to see it! Please submit a pull request to this repository with your adventure and solution.
New Copilot Adventure: [Your Adventure Name]for the PR title. Replace
[Your Adventure Name]with the name of your adventure.
We’ll review your submission and merge it into the repo if it meets the criteria.
