Atomic Talk Title: There’s no such thing as ‘no code’

In this talk, I’ll give my views on the current trend of ‘no code’ or ‘codeless’ automation. I’ll argue that these things does not exist, and that, in the end, it is all code.

I’ll talk about abstraction layers, tradeoffs between ease of use and flexibility, and marketing schemes.


  1. There is no such thing as ‘no code’ or ‘codeless’ automation
  2. Automation in code or using a low-code solution? It depends on your context
  3. Abstraction layers are a tradeoff between ease of use and flexibility
  4. Low-code automation tools are abstraction layers
