# đ”âđ« There Is No One Rounding StandardÂ InÂ Programming

# If you will round a half, you will get different result depending on your programming language.

Coding in multiple programming languages gives you a better understanding of how things can be done.

Today I will tell you about something you donât know about rounding numbers. I am sure you donât know it, because I am programming for 20 years now, and didnât know it either.

If you, however, by any chance know it, you can tap you on your shoulder, because like one on 100k developers knows it I guess.
