I've been hearing more lately about "low code" picking up steam. Google recently acquired App Sheet, etc. Do you have any thoughts on the future of this paradigm and how much developers should be adding this to their skill sets?

I'm pretty confident that once computers can do the job of a developer, we'll either be a utopian society and traveling the stars, or we'll be hiding in caves from our robot overlords. I think it's important to keep an eye out for new advancements as they come, and not just put your head in the sand about it, but I don't think that the modern development jobs of today are going away any time soon.
