Yes, you’ve heard that right – it’s Programmer’s Day today. At least in Russia, this is an official and recognized holiday. Not a public day off, though. Programmer’s Day is celebrated on the 256th day of the year, which falls on September 13th, except for leap years, when it’s on September 12th.
Congratulations to all programmers all over the world and kudos for your hard and often boring work. Keep it up and enjoy the day. I wish you fewer bugs, faster compilers, and flexible libraries.
And while I don’t dare to call myself a programmer, I’ve wrote enough to code to join the celebrations today. Beers, vodkas and tequilas are waiting for the evening!
P.S.: And if you are an outsider and have no idea how a typical programmer spends his day, here is a chart.
