When I got my first job in hi-tech company in Silicon Valley  more than 25 years ago, I wondered where all ... mature ... programmers were.  I still do not know.

"In Silicon Valley there is one underrepresented group in particular — one that by law is entitled to fair treatment in hiring and employment practices — that not only has failed to enter this conversation, but is often regarded as anathema when it comes to headcount.

And that is people over 40. Or 45. Or 50, or 60. You know…old people."

Age is just a number. Old is an attitude not a state of being.
