September 13 is International Programmers’ Day for a geeky reason. Programmer’s Day falls on the 256th day of each calendar year. Usually, it’s September 13. Computer scientists and programmers know that 256 is the number of distinct values represented by an eight-bit byte.
With that in mind, we want to thank all the programmers around the world for solving problems we didn’t know we had, starting all over whenever they find a bug and staying up all night to finish projects and never let them hang. There is so much to thank you for!
