Yes, I know this, but I'm over 60 and it's difficult to muster the energy (much less the desire) to go through the interview process which invariably includes pointless quizzes about esoteric constructs with fancy new names that don't really mean anything. I have become so reliant on google as a ready reference, that I have stopped trying to remember how I did something after I did it. There's just too much to know.

It seems that most jobs are only 6-months long, or they want "full stack" developers (another way of saying they don't want to hire enough people to do the job right) that can work on a technology mix that would make most real programmers wince in pain, and nine times out of ten, all they want is to hire someone long enough to clean up the last guy's mess, or to implement some tech agenda based on some idiot manager's wrong-headed view of how things should work.
