I'm 37 and am a hobby programmer.
I sh*t you not, but this got me onto the lisp train: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HM1Zb3xmvMc
while surfing for no reason.
After that I googled around and found Racket, what I use since about a year for inhouse scripting.
Now I'm diving into common lisp. Therefore I'm learning Emacs too, because of reasons.
It's fun! I like! And I annoy everyone around me with my enthusiasm
