re: Age of programmers, have you experienced drawbacks? VIEW POST


I don't think age is important at all. What is important is: do you fit what the company is looking for? I think in general, to be a great programmer, you have to be open to learning and be able to challenge yourself constantly.

That being said, I agree with what @DianFay says... younger people do have less commitment in life, and tend to be slightly cheaper labour, and easier to 'mould' in their eyes.


Yes, I agree, fit is more important.
However, when the position description restricts the age, you can't even appeal to that :(
