Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of developers like the terms no-code and low-code (except maybe AI). DevOps has us wanting to move fast and automate everything, but we don’t want low-code platforms to replace developers' jobs! A survey of 600 engineers had them reflect on what they wish they could spend less time on: 37% spent on manual testing of changes/writing scripts; 35% spent on refactoring old code; and only 33% spent on writing code for new features. In this talk we will discuss how low-code API management can increase developer productivity and raise developer potential by allowing them to focus on creative problem-solving. All through a single, organization-wide view.
