I get the feeling that a lot of the people here in the Lounge really don't get ChatGPT, etc. They really don't.
They hate on it, because it scares them and they want to destroy what scares them and what they don't truly understand.

ChatGPT and similar systems will ONLY get better (more accurate) over time. It will NEVER get worse (less accurate) over time.

To answer the question in your Title of your post: Yes! ChatGPT is worth the effort for developers. It's a great resource. I have found it to be very helpful, along with Google searches, etc. You have to understand its CURRENT limitations, and double check its results, knowing that some day soon, it will be more accurate than you.

Its a tool, like a hammer. You don't use a hammer to cut boards. It has its time and place, like all things.
