About National Techies Day
When is National Techies Day? This holiday is always observed on October 3
Techies Day, is an October 3 holiday. The objective of this day is to address the long-term demand for tech workers. Businesses and technical organizations use this day to encourage students to consider a career in Technology. Techies Day is an opportunity to give your friendly technician(s) some well-deserved appreciation, too.
Most technicians are normal, everyday people. Sometimes, the office technician may be a geek or a nerd. But, when your PC goes down or gets a virus, that geek is invaluable. He’s on top of his trade and can get your system back up and running faster than you can say “gigabyte”.
Not to be left out….. This day is for all technicians, not just computer techies. There are many highly skilled technical jobs out there that demand high-quality people to assess equipment of all kinds. Let’s give a big hand and thanks to all techies, from all fields, on this special day.
Here’s wishing my Techie a very Happy Techies Day. You’re the Best!
How to Celebrate National Techies Day
- Make sure that your techie knows that he or she is appreciated.

Taking good care of your Techie will reap dividends when you need him.
“There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.” – – Sam Walton
History and Origin of National Techies Day
This special day originated in 1999 by techies.com and a consortium of government and industry leaders.
Marc Andreesen, CTO of America Online, in alliance with techies.com and other leading like-minded companies including Compaq, FedEx, and Information Week, established National Techies Day.
Importnant Note: the very first National Teckies Day was held on October 5, 1999. We do not know why or when it was changed to October 3.
There is no presidential proclamation, nor any documentation from the U.S. Congress, that would support this as a true “National” day.
