here I will try to get advice on a difficult situation.
Currently I am working as a software consultant (in the same firm for eight years now).
It's a nice social environment, but they do not give me a chance to prove my development skills. And I have the feeling I am losing time the longer I am staying in this job.
It is true that I am not the fastest engineer, but hey, I started writing machine code at the age of fourteeen.
Plus I have a faible for modern languages like Kotlin.
My question: Is it woth it applying for even junior engineering jobs, now, at the age of 48?
