We've heard these arguments before when Machine Code was supplanted by Assembler; when Assembler (1st Generation) was (unsuccessfully) replaced by AutoCoders; then (more successfully) by programming languages (c1957) such as Fortran, Algol and LISP (3rd generation), then by so called 4th Generation tools such as IDEs, Report Generators, etc (c1980), and very unsuccessfully by the Japanese 5th Generation project (again, 1980s).

What happens is that the newer ways of working are disdained by existing programmers until they realise that the newer idioms just enable them to code their designs more quickly in a clearer to read and modify syntax.

I admit that I have not looked at the new no-code / low-code languages, but my guess will be that traditional programmers will not like them until they try them and find that they make the coding part easier but that the real skill (designing robust algorithms and data structures) still persist.
