No, it's celebrated as Programmer's day not because of apple dumpling :)

The idea was to pick a special day when the programmers would receive thanks and congratulations and celebrate. The best choice appeared to the the 256th day of the year - next year (as it will be a leap year) it will be Sep 12th.

Happy Programmer day! Let's all celebrate in true #gamedev fashion! #programmerday #indiedev #mobiledev

The other IT-related days are:

Apr 4th - Web designer's day (because it's 4.04)

Last Friday of July - System Administrator Appreciation Day

Sep 9th  - QA day (because on the 9th of Sep 1945 the First actual case of bug being found)

Noticed the title on this thread in the forum. Never knew there was/is a programmer's day. I am guessing it falls on a different day each year? Is this day official or just local? Either way not a bad idea probably.

It's on the 13th Sep in the regular year and on the 12th Sep in the leap year. At most it's an occasion for the programmers to remind the world of the necessity of our profession :) But officially it was recognized by the Russian government in 2001 or so.
