Never write code again! This

Never write code again!

This topic seems to crop up every 3 years or so, with reliable regularity. Some
company proclaims that writing code is dead, their fantastic new tool will do it
all for you. Just tell it what you want by point-n-clicking / writing a spec in
plain english / beaming it directly from your brain and it will mystically
produce your application, exactly how you wanted it!. Hah. I think one
of the earliest one of these appeared some time around 1983. Apparently we’ve
all been wasting our time writing code for the last 20 years. The fact that
this time its Sun doing it might make it a bit more interesting, but not by much.
