The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Low code and no code environments are often made fun of on this site. I've actually used a low-code environment and yes, developers should be concerned. Adapt or die. They are incredibly powerful and not hard to learn.
But, somebody still has to write the low-code environments. That will always exist. But at some point the job of "programmer" will be flooded in the market and salaries will begin to drop. Unless you specialize in something that can't be moved to low-code.
This is one reason I'm building a farm.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
The "duhvelopers" who're at risk from those things are the ones asking the facepalmingly stupid questions on QA and SO. Perhaps if their jobs are deleted, we won't have to keep deleting their doomed cries for help.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

People, like us, here (in the CP Lounge, of course) see these as more or less template driven websites (don't we already have that?) and there certainly seems to be a threat.
Except for one small thing:
And that small thing is the aptitude of these people to even thing about doing anything in the least bit technical. Damn - they have a hard to doing arithmetic. If there sites' to be more than a personal FauxBook then they'll need connectivity and such. Knowing what to store. Knowing what to retrieve. Etc etc etc.
My experience has found most people dumb as stick when it comes to doing anything beyond fondling their cell phones and calling themselves tech-savvy.
Boilerplate websites are already readily available and free - they don't concern me in the least. The only business I'd suspect will be lost is that craved by those hacks, slightly higher on the food chain, who had been their 'contractor' for website building.
The bigger issue at hand is the world is pushing STEM and technology on EVERYONE, and the majority of people that try it, fail, and fail miserably. They are unable to grok it, let alone implement it for a living.
So, now they are trying to come up with technologies where the masses can do technology, without technology.
This will fail and fail big time. Our jobs are not in jeopardy. Don't feed the job monster. Everyone is going to be alright.
Also, pushing the need for the entire world to be proficient at technology is un-realistic, and 100% politically motivated on every level.
I want to thank everyone who replied to my message. I feel much better today after reading your advices and feel less emotional and more calm. It was really nice of you, even you who argued with me. It was mindchanging

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
A minor defence here is that Apple is optimising 5G access so that it hits the energy consuming 5G when needed, and falls back to 4G at other times. Unless you're sitting on 5G for hours, it shouldn't consume more. Further, the new chips are more energy efficient which offsets this a little.
Even so, battery life is down an hour on some models. Video playback is down 1hr to 17hrs for the 12 Pro, but apart from that battery life seems about the same at a practical level.
Now I don't do anything on my (no Apple) flip phone but make occasional phone calls. I even have a wrist watch so it's not my on-the-road clock.
That being said, battery life decays with time until it reaches a critical lever for the consumer where they need to buy a new one because it's too inconvenient. That will happen sooner now - and a potential 5% or so sooner (for a company that demands you only patronize them) will be quite a bit of money.
