What Happen To Older Programmers/Developers/Software Engineers

I got a question about programming until old. This question is from Apaven I think. He says, “Last weekend I have discussed a software developer job with my friends about software developer is a dead end job or not. Later I tried to look on the internet and found some good arguments from both sides. Here is a sample about programming as a dead end job.” He’s got a quote from a story here, and he says, “Many programmers find that their employability starts to climb at around age 35. Employers dismiss them as either lacking in the technical skills such as the latest programming language fad or not suitable for entry level, in other words, either unqualified or overqualified. That doesn’t leave much, does it? It’s a sick show that most software developers are out of the field by 40. Employers have admitted this in unguarded moments. Craig Barrett a former chief executive officer of Intel Corp famously remarked the half life of an engineer software or hardware is only a few years while Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has blurted out that young programmers are superior. I’m not satisfied with the results from my searching, so I would like to know your opinion about this issue.”
