How do you guys and gals feel about no code tools? As someone who enjoys writing code, I find that they can be something like 95% great, but that 5% that is lacking can be REALLY detrimental, to the point that I'd rather just make something myself. Also I wonder if it's worth it to try to learn to use a new no code tool to build something when you already know how to code? I'm a big proponent of "the best code is no code", but a no code tool obviously still has code, it's just harder to actually interact with. Wouldn't just being adept at searching for and using existing open source libraries be just as effective?
Anyway, hope you all have a lovely end of the week + weekend, and here's the issue.
