If Hemingway Wrote JavaScript Book

As we’ve worked in the digital industry for more years than we care to mention here at Coolector HQ, we’re always interest when literature comes out that pertains to this industry but, truth be told, it needs to have something unusual about it to make it stand out from the crowd and that’s why Angus Croll’s If Hemingway Wrote JavaScript Book has definitely appealed to us.

Now, don’t get us wrong, our knowledge of JavaScript is negligible but we’ve worked with those proficient in the language and it is something that is of interest but, like a child, our likelihood of learning it is principally dictated by it being disguised into something else that is easier to comprehend and, for that reason, we very much like the cut of this book’s jib.

Angus Croll has taken the computer language of JavaScript and, alongside some awesome illustrations from Miran Lipovača, has imagined how JavaScript would appear were it to be written by some of history’s most famous word-smiths such as Hemingway, Shakespeare and Jane Austen and the end result is pretty humorous to say the least. Check out a few of the best below:

Needless to say, there will only be certain people that a book of this ilk will appeal to but for those in the programming sphere who happen to have a love of literature, it will surely tick all of the right boxes.
