In Brief: The Origins of the Global Programming Holiday
In 2009, the former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev issued an executive decree officially recognizing International Programmers Day, also referred to as Day of the Programmer, as a professional holiday.
Two employees of Parallel Technologies, Valentin Balt and Michael Cherviakov, conceived the idea and began a petition in 2002 to have the day recognised.
Various nations will be holding celebrations on the event in 2023.
Where to Look for Programmers
The advancement of remote working has made it possible to draw from a global pool of professionals, such as software engineers, rather than relying solely on local talent.
