Software developers and IT people in general are notoriously known for being sarcastic. That’s why these sarcastic software engineering/IT book covers from O’Rly have been so popular in our community. Anybody in software development or IT has read an O’Reilly book at some point in their career. These programming/software books cover various topics and always have an animal on the front cover. With the internet being what it is, people have decided to pay tribute to these classic O’Reilly covers by creating sarcastic programming books that are inspired by the O’Reilly book covers
I personally think that what makes these book covers so funny is the fact that there is some truth in every one of these ironic covers. Below are some of the best covers that I could find online.
