I say this as a design dude that became a developer because I got tired of developer's telling me what could and couldn't be done.
In my career, I can honestly say 90% of devs make shit overly complicated so they can impress other devs.
It's the 21st century, homie. Things should be getting _easier_ to use, not harder.
True there is something to be said about learning about programming to help bridge that gap, but as devs, we gotta meet them more than halfway.
Because we know how.
