Congrats on starting your journey and I'm glad you are excited about it.

I don't think you can be too old to start programing. I know a few people who started later on and have gone on to have very happy careers in development.

I think having the right mindset and motivation can go along way. Don't get caught up in social media drama about developments do's, don'ts and whatnot. Software development is different for everyone. You'll find the right kind of work that makes you happy.
