Moving bytes IS real engineering! Would love to know what you think of pipedream.com

I don't really have an opinion. I've had success in some cases with "click here to pipe data" tools, and also absolutely terrible experiences where doing it manually from the get go would have helped tremendously.

Did you use it? Any comments?

I am a Pipedream founder so am quite biased! But Pipedream is built specifically for developers. Check out our GitHub repo.

We do provide a UI for building integrations, but you can write any Node.js, Python, Go or Bash code within a workflow. I frequently write workflows that are a mix of pre-built actions (I don't want to write the code to send a Slack message every time) and custom code steps where I implement the logic I need for the specific automation I'm building.

Give it a try and let me know what you think! We deeply value feedback from developers. Feel free to join our community, too, if you want to chat with us via Slack / Discourse.
