Tomorrow is International Programmers Day 2011, it's an unofficial holiday that is celebrated on the 256th (0x100th) day of the year. Like many other professions I think that programmers need an appreciation day, but the question is how to celebrate? I haven't read any material stating what would be traditional so I guess it's up to each of us (or employers) to decide on how to celebrate.
As a freelance contractor I set my own rules, so I think I'll kick back, have some BBQ and cold beer. How do you plan to spend Programmers day? Does your employer have special plans for you? If so please post in the comments below.
