I remember Mactech as a really interesting technical magazine. It still exists but is really for programmers.
I am looking for a Mac/Apple magazine with some more in depth content.
How to create actions. Maybe write a small Swift app. Deeper technical content without requiring a 5 year degree in programming.

Even the old Your Computer back in the days had some more technical stories. Today the magazines (mostly from England) have almost the same (in some cases exact copies) of articles. Sure the reviews are great and some of the tips/articles are good too but I am looking for more.
Neither MacLife, MacWorld or MacUser has anything more in depth. I want to really learn to get into the weed a bit more of my Apple devices maybe with an emphasis on the Mac since that is where you build things for the other platforms.

Am I alone in this or am I too old so i am the only one remembering Your Computer? ?

Unfortunately, thanks to the web, magazines are mostly dead, especially niche magazines.

I would start with some of Apple's own books like these. There are also very good content on Youtube if you look for it. podcasts like Connected and Mac power users are very interesting as well for more in-depth Apple news and workflows.
