Podcast Episode 43 – Older Programmers

Old ManWhy is the average age of a developer so much less than the average age of a professional worker in the United States? Is it because the industry as a whole is striving to keep people out? Are companies replacing people as soon as their salary starts to get higher with people who make half as much and will work twice as many hours for the same salary? Check out what I think about it in this week’s episode.
