International Programmers’ Day celebrates the positive changes that programmers make to improve our everyday lives. International Programmers’ Day was launched in 2007 to honor programmers. It is usually held on January 7, but is also popularly celebrated on September 13, or on September 12 in leap years. The day is celebrated in many countries.

Many people observe International Programmers’ Day on the 256th day of the year because “256” (28) is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an 8-bit byte, and 256 is the highest power of 2 that is less than 365, the number of days in a year.

On the 9th September there was another professional holiday – Tester’s day. Congratulations on belated holiday! Thank you for finding the bugs and making sure everything works well!

For reference

Tester’s Day story.  

“On September 9, 1945, Grace Hopper, a computer scientist at Harvard University, was running tests on the Mark II Calculator (designed by Howard Aiken) when she found a moth that had landed between two solenoid contacts, shorting out an electromechanical relay.

Hopper removed the squashed bug and taped it to the project’s logbook with the notation: “First actual case of bug being found.” Hopper had carried out the first “debugging” and coined the term that would become synonymous with the identification and elimination of the frustrating glitches that cause computers to malfunction.”

Dear programmers and testers, thank you for everything you’ve done! We appreciate all your hard work and hope you have/had a wonderful day!
