Do software designers take visual programming languages seriously?

Posted 22 April 2013 - 04:39 PM

Your opinion, please!!

I have been researching the use of a visual programming language (e.g. Limnor, Tersus, Lily) for rapid prototyping. Do serious software engineers consider this a valid approach?

Please advise.

Not related to visual programming, but (I heard) in general Matlab and Haskell are good prototyping languages.

A lot of engineers use Labview on industrial solutions. I wouldn't say it's a prototyping tool, far from it.
