I can't speak from personal experience, more 3rd party experience.
Age doesn't seem matter if you have the right skill set and experience.
A degree alone is going to be less attractive than someone who has actual experience and a degree.
I wouldn't think age would be an issue if you know the technology the company is using and have proof of some projects have you worked on, like a portfolio.
Now if its a early 20's vs an early 30's giving me applications that have the exact same degree and skillset personally I would pick the person that has a family and would be more likely to stay with the company (Generally the older person). (Please note I only do IT hiring not programming hiring so take it with a grain of salt)
Edit: Also don't let someone talk you out of your dream you will get out of it exactly what you put into it.
