Don't even think that you will make it into your 60s with the current trends in IT.

Ageism in our profession is considered one of the worst in all US industries, considering that a majority of IT trends today are made up fantasies by people looking to make a name for themselves.

If I were you, I would look to strike out on your own into consulting, commercial software development, teaching, or writing.

After 42+ years in the profession I retired at 64. I could have continued but I was simply fed up with the hypocritical bullshit from management...

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
