    Everybody should try to learn programing to discover if they like designing and writing software and are actually good at it. Many people dislike the intense and detailed problem solving required to write non-trivial programs. However, there are also many people who find it stimulating and do enjoy it. Taking a formal college class on introduction to programming in a popular language, like Java or C#. You will find there is a lot more to writing software than you realize.

    As to age, try learning programming sooner than later. The speed at which your brain processes information, and your capacity to remember information short- and long-term, are crucial factors for being a good/better/best programmer. As we all get older, the brain is the second thing to go, so don't wait too long to try learning programming.
