I have been a developer now for almost 40 years, and over those years I have seen several products that was supposed to be a no-code solution. The last fiasco was BizTalk. Supposed to allow non-programmers and analysts create applications. The real truth was that developers had to come in to make this white elephant work by creating, of all things, 'functoids'. Little C# diddies to overcome what could not be done with the so-called no-coding. One of the projects cost over a million dollars from an off-shore company, then required a band of 5-6 .NET developers to try to save it. That failed, and ended up costing about 2 million. The project was scrapped.

Interestingly, I looked into some of the Microsoft modules. I found one of them contained about 100 Microsoft GOTO statements! So much for Microsoft standards.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
