Truth is, the low code phenomenon is here to stay. But that’s just half a truth. The other truth is, low code is nothing new, neither has not the potential to change the software industry. It has ALREADY shaped the software industry from its very beginnings.
I agree with some people's arguments that the nocode movement will kill developers jobs… only with a big caveat. No code will kill the software industry as we know it today.
However this is precisely what has been happening already in the short history of our young industry. Constantly, since its inception. If you think about how it was to work with a computer just a few decades ago, people only could do it in specific centers which had enough money to buy a massive computer the size of a (decent) dining room (a heck of a big dining room in some cases). Data would be inputted by punch cards and results would take sometimes hours or days to return.
Then in 1949 assembly language happened, and people were able to write instructions in a 1 to 1 correlation to the machine. If you have never written assembly, it is a very interesting experience, but it is painful, slow and difficult.
