I just turned 38 a few days ago.  Fell in love with programming in Basic 
on an Apple ][ when I was about 15.  My interests went in other 
directions during college (Philosophy, Religion, Peace and Global 
Studies), and then other directions in my career (desktop publishing, 
metal machining for the automotive industry).

I have gotten back into serious programming in the last five or six 
years, using VB in my work, but dabbling in C, C++, Lisp, Java, Perl. 
But Python has become my language of choice in the past several months.
