Discussion on: Why Older People Struggle In Programming Jobs

I just turned 60 this year. I'm at your state. I've done management. I've done politics. I'm through with them all.

While I'm not a programmer by profession, it is part of my skill set where I work. Your observations are not just happening in technology but it happens in many corporations and large businesses. I nodded my head on many of your anecdotes.

I think one of the things that gets me as I've grown older is that my BS meter sensitivity keeps increasing. I can spot BS far easier now than I use to, and I don't have any flowery words for those spreading it either.

Good read, sir.
