Today is a special day! For all of us. Well, for those who code. Programmers’ Day is celebrated on the 256th day of the year because this is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, and the highest power of two which is less than 365. To make it clear, hexadecimal 100th, or the 2^8. Complicated? As everything in the programmer’s world! Happy Programmer’s Day!
