Is 30 too old to work as a developer.?

Just need some opinions. I'm almost 30 yrs old. I gordered my hands dirty in web design when I was 24 and doing my own small little projects on and off since then. I have been learning more Javascript and android development here on tree house and relived i love all this and want to do this forever and would like to find work in this field.

So my question is do you think this is a young Pearson game or is 30 still ok to develop for now and beyond?

Hi ali, I think it is never too late to learn or do something in life . I am 39 , and i am a surgeon , i love technology I enrolled about a week ago in the teamtreehouse courses in developing ios apps , and this is my first experience in coding , so , i am an absolute beginner in this field ,

I am buying my new macbook pro in the next days JUST for app designs ... As i said , never too late for anything , i am learing medevine since 21 years , and still learning , no harm to add to this knowledge some technology i love .

You r still young . Go for it

EPIC! I want to make ios app but no mac but i have a ios device :(

I heard 30 years is not to old you still got 30 or so years to go and I'll say that's a long time...
