To The Programmers, On Programmers’ Day

To the Programmers on Programmers’ Day,

To the childhood spent with cassette players and VIC-20s, and Saturdays loitering in the local Radio Shack for a turn on the TRS-80.

To those who maybe weren’t always the coolest kids in high school, but were often the smartest.

To the Rubyists and Lispers and Pythonistas, the architects, and the web and mobile developers who are able to show their children what mom/dad made.  And to the embedded engineers who write code most people don’t even know is there.

To the thousands of Googlers, Yahoos, and Microsofties who make our email work and build tools to find anything imaginable.  And to the many millions more who build things to run our homes and our lives.

To the hackers, the makers, the tinkerers, the startup junkies, the hobbyists, the open source contributors, the newbies and the grayhairs, who live in IDE’s and editors by day and often by night.

To those of you who have some of the best jobs in the world, with the highest hiring demand, yet are sometimes prone to saying that spending several minutes deleting potential job offers from your inbox can be a chore.  And to those that are hustling for their next gig.

To those who solve the most complex technical problems in creative and elegant ways, yet are forced to distill their career for most people down to “I work with computers”.   

Today, we salute you.  Thanks for all you do.

With the deepest respect,
