Not only is coding in an interview different from coding for a business over the course of several months, the years of experience a person has may not be a factor in how efficient/productive an employee is. The Mythical Man-Month (on page 30) cites a 1960s study that found that there was no correlation between work performance and years of experience in a programmer. Given the age discrimination that some older job seekers have felt in I.T., this idea that years of experience is irrelevant to true productivity may be true in the modern world of programming. Be encouraged whatever age you are; the environment (or the idiosyncrasies of the employer) and situation of the position may be the main factor for your success.
