Abstraction is a key concept in software development that refers to the process of hiding complex implementation details and presenting only the necessary information to the users. It allows the simplification of complex systems, facilitates the reusability of code and components, enables the Modularity, and increases the flexibility. This has been a pre-requisite to transition from low-level programming languages like assembler, to high-level languages like C and Java, that removed the need of programming based on specifics chip instructions sets to a higher level and enabled faster and more complex application development.
If we wonder which abstraction comes after modern programming languages the clear answer would be low-code. Low-code achieves its abstraction over the modern code through visual modelling tools and pre-built components. This allows low-code developers to create software applications by dragging and dropping components onto a canvas that encapsulates complex functionalities, such as database access, user authentication, and User Interfaces.
Just like traditional programming languages, different low-code development platforms are better suited for different use cases. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so it's important to understand how each vendor's platform works to ensure project success.
