Programmers Day

Programmers Day is celebrated on September 13, or the 256th day of the year. The day honors programmers and innovators who make our lives easier by innovating and designing programs. The day is also known as International Programmers Day, and its celebration is actually based on the binary code! Every programmer knows that 256 is a special number. It is represented by an eight-bit byte 256 equals 2 to the eighth power. This digit makes it the highest power of two that is less than 365. When translated to binary code, the day reads 1 0000 0000. How cool is that!
