What is Devin?

Devin is a self-sufficient model capable of planning, analyzing, and executing intricate code and software engineering tasks through a single command. Equipped with its own command line, code editor, and a dedicated web browser, Devin demonstrated its abilities by successfully testing Meta’s Llama 2 on various API providers.

It possesses remarkable features such as the ability to learn new technologies on the go, create and deploy complete applications from scratch, automatically identify and rectify bugs, train its own AI models, and contribute to production codebases. All of this is accompanied by real-time progress updates and collaboration with users. Devin’s performance on the SWE-bench coding benchmark is cutting-edge, resolving 13.86% of issues end-to-end, compared to the mere 1.96% achieved by previous models.
