GitHub is running interesting experiments with semantic code search:

Search "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything"
=> "It looks like we don't have great results for that search."

Interesting but doubtful results for "calculate 42".

@ekaitz_zarraga So use basically every other search? I mean, like... What?

@rixx I was just joking, the experiment is cool but when I'm coding I'm mostly looking for implementation of functions and this kind of stuff and I already know the name so I look for keywords.
