I've been programming professionally since 1986 when I had a 70+ year old mentor writing accounting and plant control systems in TurboDOS. Now I code AND design large complex systems using either .NET or Rails. I don't send CV's to people unless they ask for them and they have to know of me in the first place to even ask.

I think the older devs that are still relevant probably don't show up in the job seeking type of data, they are probably already booked with paying work and startups!
