Today, AWS is announcing the general availability of Amazon CodeWhisperer. This artificial intelligence (AI) coding companion generates real-time single-line or full function code suggestions in your integrated development environment (IDE) to help you more quickly build software. With general availability, we are excited to introduce two tiers: CodeWhisperer Individual and CodeWhisperer Professional.

CodeWhisperer Individual is free to use for generating code. You can sign up with an AWS Builder ID based on your email address. The Individual Tier provides code recommendations, reference tracking, and security scans. 

CodeWhisperer Professional—priced at $19 per user, per month—additionally offers enterprise administration capabilities to organizations that want to provide their developers with access to CodeWhisperer. Administrators get organizational license management to centrally manage which developers in the organization should have access to CodeWhisperer. They also get organizational policy management to set service policies at the organizational level. 

CodeWhisperer programming language support is also expanding. In addition to supporting Python, Java, JavaScript, TypeScript, and C#, CodeWhisperer can now also generate code suggestions for Go, Rust, Kotlin, Scala, Ruby, PHP, SQL, C, C++, and Shell Scripting.
