Hi all, just got to level 12 and read a success story where they stated that if they could do it at age 30 anyone can. This got me thinking, how old is too old to learn to program. I am from the UK and am 51. I am doing it to see how far i can self develop and learn and see if it takes me anywhere. Before this i have had zero programming knowledge and in terms of general IT i was late to the party as they say. Anyway was just curious and wandered if i was the oldest JAVA learner on CodeGym or are there others like me out there??? Either way i will keep plodding on this journey of self learning
How old is too old?

Never too late to learn something new, keep it up!

Hey Steve O! I am 52 and going back to college to earn my BS in Computer Science. I have a ton of Mathematics to complete and that is what I believe is the hardest. But if I can learn college level Algebra, you can learn Java! Although I will admit I think we old farts learn a little slower and have to put more effort into it, but we also have more wisdom and problem solving skills then them young wipper snappers! Cheers Mate!

You are in my age. I have started like you - without any experience in programing. I am level 7.
