I was recently introduced to the concept of visual programming or 'low-code' as Forrester Research calls it.
A drag-n-drop UI inside an IDE for a modern take on rapid application development.
The trouble is, I can't see that it's very popular, despite several platforms that seem very advanced with good reviews.
I'm guessing developers either haven't heard of it, or it's been cost prohibitive with current platforms, or there is a reluctance to use something that sounds 'too good to be true' or restrictive perhaps.
I live to learn and would appreciate hearing views from the community.
As a hobby I'm also learning a bit of robotics with keen on short-cuts as a 'maker' with raspberry pie to visually program. But with an extensible low-code platform, I don't see any limitations in what's possible.
Thanks for insights.
