Programmer's Day is a whimsical "holiday" on the 256th day of the year celebrated mostly by computer programmers. The reason for this is that 256 is equal to 2 to the power of 8, which is equal to the number of values that it is possible to represent in a byte of data. Traditions include drinking, eating cookies, acting silly, coding silly programs, mini computer games, playing with old computers, etc. Programmer's Day usually falls on September 13th; on leap years it is September 12th.

Darn, I just found out, so I didn't celebrate it.

Did you celebrate this important day? How?

September 12th 2008 - Programmer's Day, In the calendar.

I wonder if I could get the day off as a 'religious' day?


What sort of thing do you wish a programmer on Programmer's Day?

May all your programs compile

May your fingers and eyes be well rested

May your seated flesh be less painful today

Happy bits ad bytes

Have a merry Pday

It's day 1111 1111 of the year, good programmer's vibes to you
