Old Dogs Must Learn New Tricks

An article at TheServerSide grabbed my attention violently: it was claiming that your professional "half-life" as a programmer is at 35.  This was immediately disturbing since it took me until 28 to really land my first professional programming job.

From reading the comments it seems that the consensus is that the person was basing his experience solely off of Google, who has a notorious youth-culture, and that if you keep your skills current you should be just fine.

Or, to put it another way, old dogs must learn new tricks to survive.
