Just been offered a contract job for less money than I used to earn humping crates around in a warehouse answering the phones and logging calls on an IT helpdesk.. and they insist that I need to run a car. Isn't progress great.
I calculate :
15 years in previous career.(which wasn't in a warehouse, BTW)
3 years getting a degree in IS
2 years to get first job in new career at lowest possible level

= further 42 years until I climb to the dizzying heights of junior programmer. Good job they are planning to end age discrimination.

Well, starting at the bottom can be frustrating, but I'm sure if you've got lots of other good experience and skills, once you prove yourself as a great developer, you'll find you can get better prospects than those junior programmers
