I found out this year that there’s such a thing as the Day of the Programmer. As a former software and database programmer, I was happy there’s a day for my past career. I remember working long hours, sometimes 14-16 hours a day, programming and writing software for multiuser platforms. I enjoyed those days, but I am happy to leave it all behind and spend my days writing novels instead.
This year, this special day falls on September 13, 2022. I read that they used binary numbers to calculate this day and it lands on the 256th day of the year. This converts into 2 to the power of 8, which is 100000000 in the binary system. As you know, our common numbering system is the decimal system.
I am familiar with the binary system because it’s the building block of computing. On and off. One and zero. In fact, I named my near-future technothriller series Binary Hackers for this reason. In the first book, we meet Cayson Yang, whose company is called Binary Systems, Inc.
Here’s what my Binary Hackers series is all about.
