When I Think About Age Discrimination In Tech...

...I think about people around me whose benefits are about to run out because recruiters don't want to put them forward for work they have twenty years of experience, because it involves a language or framework that isn't directly on the CV for years. Or isn't management because surely at their age they should be in management. Or the employing team, all 15 years younger, doesn't think they would be a fit.

People lose their homes this way.

Turns out I should have been worried about teens not getting enough free tickets for conferences, just because they like to show up. "Events have many sponsors, fact." Yeah.
