Low Code / No Code Platforms

I recently encountered the idea of Low Code/No Code Platforms in a client context and while my initial reaction has been kind of ‘No…please…No’, I became curious. Is my rejecting reaction just based on my bias as a software developer and code wrangler? Therefore I wanted to explore and understand this topic a bit better. What are “Low Code Platforms”? What do I consider low code application platforms (LCAP) in this context?
