Old and modern "low code" tools and solution all seem to assume that efficiency could be increased by hiding complexity, and making it "easy" to produce code without real knowledge.
The reality is that successful tools "empower" knowledgeable developers to create better solutions.
So focus on "smart" tools for good "developers" will be (at least) 100x more productive
that "easy" tools for "non-developers".
Just my 5c... supported by evidence of many successful startups and sw companies.
and here is a informative, while opinionated view from O'Reilly...

- non-react state is easier to work with. Updates to non-react state are synchronous — no need to put stuff that reads an updated value
- updating a non-react state doesn’t trigger a re-render.
- Not using react state helps avoid a problem I call render thrashing
- react state carries more semantics, and overusing it makes your app seem more complex.
useRefreturns a mutable ref object whose
.currentproperty is initialized to the passed argument (
initialValue). The returned object will persist for the full lifetime of the component.

Rust is a fast, reliable, and memory-efficient programming language. It's been voted the most loved programming language six years in a row (survey). Created by Mozilla, it's now used at Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google for systems infrastructure, encryption, virtualization, and more low-level programming.
Rust helps developers write fast software that's memory-efficient. It's a modern replacement for languages like C++ or C with a focus on code safety and concise syntax.
