Programmers from all over the world are celebrating Programmers´ Day today
Bengaluru September 14th 2018 : The 256th day of the year is celebrated as Programmers´ Day all over the world. This year it happens to be today, the 13th of September. The number 256 is not a coincidence of course. It symbolizes the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year. Also, it is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, a value that is notorious to programming.
Programmers from JetBrains are joining in today's celebrations with our #MyDriveToDevelop campaign. Celebrating together with the world their profession and the community they are a part of, the reasons they love their career, and what led them to choose it.
“Programming is like creating something out of thin air, it is like magic. Fixing bugs is like solving a crime.” Anonymous programmer, JetBrains.
“Programming is art contrary to the belief that this is a technical profession.” Anonymous programmer, JetBrains.
