September 13th: Programmer's Day

9/13/21 11:21 AM

Some people may find it strange that some years Programmer's Day is celebrated on September 13 and in leap years it falls a day earlier. Why does this international day change its date?

The answer can be found in the particular proposal of Valentin Balt, who at the beginning of the millennium asked the Russian president to establish a date to commemorate the work of all professionals. But it was not until 2009 when the President of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev, designated the date as official.

The number 256 (28) was chosen because it is the number of numbers that can be represented by 8 bits (or 1 byte). On the other hand, the number 256 is the greatest power of 2 less than 365 (number of days in a year).

Meet TeamX: Miguel Ángel Martín

9/1/21 3:13 PM

Miguel Ángel Martín (Miki) is an IT engineer and has been working at TravelgateX since he finished his undergraduate studies in Computer Science. His beginnings were in 2015 as an intern, but with time and learning he managed to become part of the Hotel-X team. In this interview, Miki explains to us how his beginnings were and how is his personal experience working in the company. 

Miki, tell us about your beginnings and why you ended up working in this sector.

I decided to study a degree in Computer Engineering because I have been passionate about computers since I was very young. I started working for TravelgateX as an intern in October 2015. Furthermore, I spent several months working as an intern, and then I became part of the full-time staff in the flight integrations team. There I had the opportunity to coincide with great people who taught me a lot, like Pipe and Jaume. Later, I saw that I needed new challenges and I joined the Hotel-X team (at that time Hub-Aggregator) and so on until today.
