Most of the companies don't want to hire programmers whose age is more than 30. They preffer young guys than OLD programmer. I also heard that in the Microsoft the average age of programmer is 22. Why is so that? Does it mean when programmer gets older he becomes less productive in programming? Normally experience polish persons' quailities, and obvously experienced or old programmer should be better. And what about the people who start programming in their old ages? ain't this disappointing that?
I'm also a programmer. I would like to program in my whole life and want to be a good programmer. Just wondering how far we can go...
