I can't be the only retired programmer who still wants to do something interesting. In my case it turned out to be related to braille transcription (and I'm not interested in working on anything else).
It seems to me that the underlying software engineering problems and the paradigms haven't changed that much since I took my first programming course before a lot of you guys were born. We older people may not know what an Ubuntu distro is or appreciate the trade-offs between client-side and server-side or recognize every buzzword (I'm still having a bit of trouble fully appreciating Ajax for example) but we aren't dumb. Plus I'm sure I'm not the only older code developer planning to be around long enough to be eventually needing accessible software.
