What do you guys think is the proper retirement age for a dev , i am thinking 35 to 40 for me
Can’t continue working for other companies after that

    Retirement at 40?
    No, no, that's the age when you become a Project Manager.

    With what I'm earning, I'm definitely not retiring at 35. Or 40. Maybe 50 if I'm lucky.

    @heyheni project manager is kind of retirement right 😂

    @EmberQuill I don’t have family burden, otherwise 40 would not be possible

    Here I'm thinking about retiring when I'm 70, retirement age is 65 now and will be increased so for me as I'm young it will probably be 70 as standard

    I STARTED coding professionally after 40.

    I'm aiming to become self-employed or start a business when I turn 30 or maybe have a one year break where I travel to different countries gathering new ideas. I'm saving up money for that while investing on whatever crap I find. Experiments, who knows what happens?

    Actual retirement, I am not sure. I like this field and imagine myself doing it for a very long time, it's the employed part, working five days a week on a set schedule, and going to the office that I hate.

    @rutee07 agree with you, by retirement i mean not doing 9 to 5 and have enough money to live rest of life carefree.
    I want to get a garage and do wood cutting after 40, maybe i will go into manufacturing field

    I'm 27 and already dislike the 9-5 rat race. I'm putting effort into writing my own software products and learning about running my own business, because it's just not fulfilling slugging away working on someone else's dream.
