I was constantly moved on new projects, with new technologies stack, ranging from PHP, Python, AngularJS, Struts, Spring Boot, Vue, SQL Server, Node, React. You name it. ... I never received any guidance, training, or support. ... Is this just a sign that I'm not cut out for the job, or that I'm perhaps too old to keep up (I'm 42)?

Not remotely, no. I would say that it is a sign that your management (the people who move you to new technologies without guidance, training, or support) is not cut out for the job. They are exploiting you - as you probably know. If you were new to the game, in your late teens or early twenties or after a career change then maybe you might consider that an acceptable trade-off while you garner enough experience. As a more experienced programmer it isn't clear why you would continue to put up with this. In your shoes I would be actively looking around for a position with a better employer (or to strike out on my own but given what you've said about your current psychological state that's probably not a great idea just now).

In summary, it's not you and it's not programming; it's your employer.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
