Is Lowcode succeeding where we are failing?

Low-code is universally recognized as one of the most recent approaches to democratizing software development in the era of professional skill shortage. Low-code potentially opens the software engineering field to a broader community that, in general, could meet a barrier due to a shortage of qualified personnel in programming. Many characterizing concepts and foundations are in common with model-driven engineering, which seems to be losing the quest due to limited usability, excessive accidental complexity, and lack of flexibility. On the other hand, modeling is unavoidable in several domains where rigor and formality are essential. The panelists will provide their views and counter-arguments in analyzing the Low-code phenomena identifying the reasons for getting or not getting inspired by it.
