Imagine a world where there are no computers, no mobile phones, no applications, no internet and no technology based on software. In today’s world that is difficult to imagine, isn’t it? We use these technologies extensively and our lives revolve around them. You can do anything using these devices and things just keep getting better.
If the hardware devices are the body, then the software running these devices is the soul. All the technology innovations and advances are in part thanks to the amazing software behind the scenes.
And the wizards creating these amazing pieces of software are the Programmers. Without programmers writing, testing, executing and innovating their software; none of the technological advances would have been possible. There would have been no internet, no cloud and definitely no Instasafe.
So at Instasafe, we would like to THANK our and the rest of the world’s amazing Programmers for their effort and creativity. And there is a day specially dedicated to thank them.
Did you know that 12th September is celebrated as Programmers’ Day?
Programmers Day is celebrated on the 256th day of the year which falls on 13th September in common years and 12th September in Leap years.
The number 256 (28) was chosen because it is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, a value well-known to programmers. 256 is also the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year.
So this Programmers’ Day, go ahead and Thank the programmers in your organisation. And Thank your Programmer friends.
