re: Forty and still a dev? VIEW POST


I occasionally read posts about people who are 40 being "old". It seems like younger developers don't quite understand why any of their peers would consent to getting older.

I mean, what idiot decides to be 40, eh?

The only other jobs I can think that have anything in common with this are professional athlete or manufactured pop idol.

I'm not sure, but there seems to be a correlation with people who think developers have to be young and people whose careers are a tool to make them wealthier than their peers.

I'm older than the old guy in this post, and I'm not in a fast or slow lane to being a gazillionairre.

And I think it's all bit... weird.


There's sometimes a very thin line between a young developer and a hipster. Those two are known to overlap every now and then 😄
