Coding is a blue collar job now? I thought coding work was only done by teenaged geeks I see walking around downtown all the time wearing sneakers and hoodies. Nothing wrong with that but that's always been my image of the typical coder or tech worker. I have an interest in the field but being in my 50’s I’ve always honestly felt a little intimidated changing careers or looking for job in tech. This article is an eye opener but it doesn’t say much about senior level coders or job seekers. How difficult would it be for a 54 year old find blue collar coding job?

Don't be intimidated about changing your career. To be honest right now is the perfect time to get into the tech industry. I would recommend to find courses that gives the basic teaching of coding to get your foot in the door
