Code is only the bit in the middle of the job I do

Low code sounds all very useful until managers realise that the coding part is just the fiddly bit in the middle of what we do for a living as software developers. A significantly large proportion of our time is just understanding what the hell they actually want to something to do. Another rather significantly large proportion of time goes on making sure what got made actually does match up, in reality, with what they wanted it to do in the first place, as well as generally not exploding, falling over, producing strange results when there's an R in the month, etc.
