"Age isn't important unless you are a cheese"
I used to have a pad of post-it notes with this slogan, courtesy of a cheese dairy.
There's one aspect of Perl that no one's mentioned yet, and that's the Perl Community. I'm also in my fourth decade, and a regular attender of Perlmonger events especially socials.
One of the nice things about Perlmongers is that, in my experience, the group is inclusive, and non-ageist.
Perlmonger social meetings provide an opportunity to chew the collective cud, and to talk about some of the meta issues of Perl programming. Tech talks are even better, as you get the opportunity to learn something.
