I completely disagree. I'm 45, still coding, still current and will remain so until they stick tubes in me on my deathbed. In fact, I'm at yet another crossroads in my career (there are many on the technology road) - stick with .NET, which is my bread and butter, or switch to Android and open source-based development? I'm making the move to mobile development, and right now that means Android development for me. I started out over 20 years ago as a C/UNIX guy, then moved to Windows, then moved to .NET, and will remain open minded and flexible as technology choices and trends dictate (or interest me). So my advice to the young 'uns - keep developing, keep learning, do what you love. There will only be an increasing need for talent going forward, especially as that talent becomes senior-level.
