National IT Professional Day!

Today we celebrate the people who take care of the tech problems of the world, its National IT Professionals Day.  This day is observed annually on September 17th.

As an IT pro myself, I deserve to celebrate this day with the rest of the worlds best programmer out there.  I been in the industry of technology for over 30 years and providing technical consultation to some people who need technical help is quite fulfilling when you’re able to resolve their problem.  I might not be a full pledge programmer who codes application to make it run but I can help people solve their problem when encountering technical problems to the best of my knowledge especially when it comes to software application as well as computer and device usage.

IT means Information Technology and it is the use of computers, retrieving, transmitting and manipulation of data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise.  Devices have been used to aid in the world of technology for over a thousand years and it makes life easier.  The people who program the devices for it do a task is done by programmers and without those codes they create, a device or any electronic computer is just a device without a purpose.

IT professionals are the unsung hero who makes technology work in the modern business, and usually are often under-appreciated because we don’t actually see what they do, what we see are the devices, the computers, the online stores, and the film we watch on televisions, without knowing that programmers make this all happen by applying the codes and programming for it to work, whether it is in your laptop, on your internet service, or anything that runs on command, it is all because of all the  IT professionals out there.

So, today, if you are an end-user, if you anyone who is an IT pro, simply say thank you since they made life easier and the world a better place in the modern world.  If you are a business owner or company, you can appreciate all the hard work of your IT professionals in keeping up the trend of your business in competition in the world of technology and make your business more productive and in the advantage stage.  Share on social media this appreciation day to raise awareness and acknowledge IT pros using #ITProDay.

1787 U.S. Constitution signed

The Constitution of the United States of America is signed by 38 of 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Supporters of the document waged a hard-won battle to win ratification by the necessary nine out of 13 U.S. states.

The Articles of Confederation, ratified several months before the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781, provided for a loose confederation of U.S. states, which were sovereign in most of their affairs. On paper, Congress–the central authority–had the power to govern foreign affairs, conduct war, and regulate currency, but in practice, these powers were sharply limited because Congress was given no authority to enforce its requests to the states for money or troops. By 1786, it was apparent that the Union would soon break up if the Articles of Confederation were not amended or replaced. Five states met in Annapolis, Maryland, to discuss the issue, and all the states were invited to send delegates to a new constitutional convention to be held in Philadelphia.

On May 25, 1787, delegates representing every state except Rhode Island convened at Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania State House for the Constitutional Convention. The building, which is now known as Independence Hall, had earlier seen the drafting of the Declaration of Independence and the signing of the Articles of Confederation. The assembly immediately discarded the idea of amending the Articles of Confederation and set about drawing up a new scheme of government. Revolutionary War hero George Washington, a delegate from Virginia, was elected convention president.
