Today was a day to celebrate the folks who write the beautiful code that makes our little world go beep beep. If you are a programmer/engineer/hacker or my favorite, code artist, we hope that your day was simply terrific. For the rest of you, please go find a programmer to hug right now (or at the very least, salute).
Here are a few ways that programmers told us they planned to spend today, according to their feedback on Facebook and Twitter, presented to you via Storify. If you have additional responses, please leave them in the comments.
