But John—you crazy author of these books—what in the four horsemen do zombies have to do with web development?
Well…what do boring books and stale metaphors really have to do with web development?
Zombie jokes can make anything fun.
But there’s a deeper reason for the zombies.
They make good analogies.
John isn’t interested in writing fluff books that just make you giggle.
He wants you to learn these concepts and understand them.
The analogies he builds from the apocalypse and subsequent zombie invasion will both make you smile and teach you some code.
Getting braaains should be fun!
And if you’re still saying “But why zombies?”
I say, Why not?
