I'm 48 (plus change) and a developer for 24...
Has a lot of experience, but as with most of us - it is field specific.
While I can learn everything based on my experience, almost no employer will take the chance (they think learning must be done under 30)...
So the options are limited. Either I stay in development and the only advance in payment will be linked to inflation, or move on to management and get a bit more...
It is actually a kind of balance one should find. If you are in it for getting rich, than start moving fast and early. If you are in for the love of what you are doing, than look for the money can get you on and going day-by-day...
Depending on your ways you can get fully satisfied in both ways at the end, however richness not guaranteed...
