57  -- I guess I'm on the right side of the curve. I started programming with Fortran 2 back in 
high school. I regard programming as a way to make tools to do what I want -- so I've never 
regarded myself as a professional programmer. I've written a lot of code because it's been 
easier to program a computer to do a task than to train a human. 
I ran into Python about 2 years ago when I was looking for an easy way to do data animation. 
Python's ability to easily implement complex data structures sold me.
