     The Power Query add-in for Excel  (Get & Transform Data in Excel 2016) is an example of visual programming for the domain of transforming and shaping data. I'm a programmer (VBA, Java, Ruby, Clojure) and haven't used any custom code (other than custom functions in Power Query) to munge data for 3 years! Really. There is no data transform that can't be done since the interface in Power Query is a real functional programming language.
