Downside of Low Code

Posted at — Aug 21, 2021

“low code” as one very serious Achilles' heel. The problem with low-code is that it’s actually an exercise in filling out forms to connect systems, actions, and the like. Based on my experience doing exactly that about 25 years ago here’s what I know.

But the biggest problem is that every decision you make is a “lock in”. For example; database schema underlying the project drive the project so what happens when something changes. Underlying ORM is not going to autocorrect. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
