1 Stop seeing Age as an indicator for quality.

A person might be 55 (what I would see as "older") and just started coding at 50. Age (as well as gender, ethnicity etc.) is no indicator for how good you are.

So..

2 Where I live, they don't. No company has the right to lay off people based on those indicators.

There will be tons of old devs in the coming decades. You betta' recognize 🙃

 

Yeah, some of the comments on this made me think "WTF - legally you cannot do that!" then I remembered its mostly US and their employment law is basically broken.
