With all the excitement about no-code and low-code development, some people are a little confused as to what the limitations are, and the problem domain of full-code development.

 

Let's talk about the strengths and limitations of no-code development tools like Power Apps. Is the future of full-code development going to be just about components and micro-services, with the wiring done using tools like Power Automate?

@Bill Ayers it depends on the application context if you have specific features that require coding from scratch the application or not.
