I'm a 61y old developer who rose from system operator to VP IT without a degree and chose to give up the money and 'power' of upper management to return to my first love - development. My latest goals are learning physical computing and living long enough to close my career with 50 years of software development experience.

I find it really uplifting that you came back to programming!
From your experience, what would you say about technologies that get hyped a lot? Are there some that lived up to their hype?
So many more that were never more than a fad. One of these days I'm going to blog my memoirs of nearly 40y as a technologist - good and bad jobs, decisions, stupid mistakes and funny stories.
Awesome! I'll be looking forward to that blog post :)
