On September 12, we celebrated an International Programmer’s Day at Daxx and congratulated our IT engineers on their professional holiday. Learn more about how we celebrated it online.
It won’t be an exaggeration to say that software developers are shaping the future with innovation and technology. They work tirelessly on different kinds of projects to make the world around us better. We appreciate this a lot and had a big pleasure to congratulate our talented coders on Programmer’s Day.
Let’s consider briefly the holiday’s history. Programmer’s Day is celebrated on the 256th day of each year. Usually, it’s September 13 in common years or September 12 in leap years. The number 256 (28) was chosen for a good reason. It’s the number of distinct values that can be represented with a byte. In addition to this, 256 is the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year.
This year’s celebration went online as we continue to work from home. We haven’t seen each other in a while and missed each other a lot. Yet, we all preserved the festive spirit. In honor of the Programmer’s Day, all Daxxers received a holiday gift — a comfy hoodie — to keep them warm and healthy. Wear these hoodies, guys, and feel our virtual hugs.
We believe that care has no distance or borders. Though the celebration in the office is not an option at the moment, we’re always there for our teammates. We support them every day and especially through such uncertain times.
We wish our colleagues exciting projects to develop, lots of inspiration, and productive work. We’re proud of your career achievements, guys, and excited to see your professional growth.
May the bugless code be with you today and every day!
