Is coding becoming obsolete? (Part I)

There’s been “no-code” revolutions before, with tools more specifically geared towards software professional, Dreamweaver for one, and plenty of drag n’ drop database front-end applications (Magic, Calrion). But the reality is eventually when you want to start doing more complex things, it’ll boil back down to having to write code.

As for the examples I’ve cited, Magic and Calrion — most people may have never heard of them, along with hundreds of other similar applications. Those sort of applications seems to fizzle and die, being replaced with something more flexible in the medium to long term.

Not to mention another revolution that could supersede this revolution, code generated by AI systems. That’s a thing that’s always threatened to appear to take away jobs but never quite makes it.
