Discussion on: Graph Your Metrics with no-code

Ok, so apparently I phrased that the wrong way: I don't want to challenge you in the sense that I think a no-code approach is "the wrong way" of going about things. I have just personally come to the conclusion that we are not there yet; meaning that these solutions aren't viable options for people who can actually code. At the same time, I realize that this will eventually change.
What I AM challenging is that this approach is a faster, easier or even more interesting approach in a scenario where you could achieve the same outcome in a "code solution".
And I think what you say about enabling more people to do things is completely accurate (not sure if I would call that democratizing, but let's ignore semantics), I am just under the impression that we need to be honest with the current state of technology:

Yes, when you cannot walk, it's amazing what you can achieve with a wheelchair. And I applaud good engineering in that respect. At the same time, I wouldn't state that a wheelchair is comparable to walking on your own feet. But I am fully aware that one day there might be a exoskeleton that will make using your own legs a less powerful solution.
