Instead of discussing the problem, everybody discuss ipad and kindle?
When I was about 50 (long ago), I could not get a job in one of fields I used to work before, so I had to change my field - and became a programmer. I'm still in middle-age and can see my programming skills improve with age(or with learning new technologies, with more experience - who can distinguish?), but I don't feel my ability to generate ideas is that good as before - it is difficult to say if this because of age, occupation, work environment or other circumstances. Routine skills in design, development and coding are necessary for software projects, but cannot ensure much progress in technology without sharp new ideas, so idea generation is the most important criteria of brain quality. My best ideas appeared when I was 20-35.

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
