create a "google maps" clone using only "no code" platform?
create a "MS Office" clone using only "no code" platform?

Yes, but why would you want to clone any of those things? Using pre-fabricated components and software products is actually one expression of no-code. As to SalesForce, I've created several CRM systems using Magic

The point is not whether I want to clone them, it's that to make complicated and sophisticated software, coding is a must. I believe no-code platforms has their use cases which I mentioned above but they can't replace Coding.

When I started coding professionally, we had to manually create HTML, CSS and JavaScript to create simple websites. Today that's unthinkable, and we can just use Wix or WordPress or something to achieve 100x more in 1% of the time.

Humanity will still need "smart people" in the future, to do "smart things", but our profession will drastically change in the near future due to low-code and no-code tools.

No-code platforms are suitable for comparatively simpler websites, web apps, prototypes, and internal tools. Coding is inevitable for anything big and serious work.

It's a scientific fact.
