Today is International Programmers’ Day, like every September 13. Every commemorative event has its history and we want you to know the history of this day.
It began to be celebrated in Russia because a young computer scientist, Valentin Balt, applied to the Ministry of Communication for such a celebration. It was not until 2009 that the Russian authorities officially validated this date. Over the years many countries have also adopted this date and today it is celebrated worldwide.
Why is it celebrated on the 256th day of the year? This detail was chosen on purpose, by programmer Valentin Balt. The number 256 is the maximum number that can be represented with 8 bits and is also the maximum power of 2 that can be expressed within a limit of 365.
Nowadays, almost all the electronic devices around us have been programmed and it is one of the most important and demanded positions in the work environment.
