Honey, I built the app! Amazon's beta no-code dev platform is great for ad-hoc stuff, but not much else – yet

Alright but...

I think it was Tom Kyte that said, "The second you do anything in a generic fashion, you suffer the worst effects of everything bad in a tool and the least benefit of anything good it has.". That's stuck with me for many years.

You can only offer so many options when you put low/no-code solutions together, I think for someone who has no coding skills, very little time and can't afford a coder these tools suffice but people have to simply make do with the limitations. I tried this tool and I'm sure someone will find it useful but it's much like "PowerBI lite", a simple app for simple needs to display biz data.

Usable but can't see much future that PHBs in meeting rooms waving about the apps they've "written" themselves!
