agism is alive an well in the tech industry. sad.

honestly i prefer to work with people older then myself. i am in my late 30s and fine the wisedom your generation brings to a team is beyond value. Most often i have found that troubleshooting is about how well we work together as a team to figure out what is the correct and right solution.

Personally I have tried to take the route of being an independent contractor, and working with many irons in many fires as you could say. However that has its downside as the money isn't usually as good unless you get a break here and there. However i find it much more rewarding to not have to deal with the politics that plague cool people trying to make cool things together.

Anyways good luck. im rooting for ya.
