I’ve been meaning to do a post on ageism and professional development for some time now. Perhaps next week when I take a little off time with the family in Nashville.
Having been a professional developer (contractor, employee, manager, owner, entrepreneur) now for some twenty-five years, I have more than a few idle thoughts on the subject.
Part of my reticence on writing about the issue (which is very real) is not wanting to come across as just another bitter old guy crying about one thing or the other being better when I was a younger guy. I’d rather write a heist novel – nobody’s ever done that, right?
Any way, trying to coalesce my thoughts into a semi-worthwhile take on the subject. Meanwhile, if you have thoughts on the subject (or war stories), please feel free to leave them in the comments below.
