Press Release

No Starch Press has long been the go-to source for curious kids, offering the finest in geek entertainment and education. Its recent line of kids programming books has garnered widespread praise from educators, parents, and book reviewers alike. Today, No Starch teams up with Humble Bundle to offer the Humble Brainiac Book Bundle.

Humble Bundle’s pay-what-you-want model allows customers to pay any price for the eBook bundle, valued at over 250 dollars.

No Starch Press founder Bill Pollock says, “We’re committed to making technical subjects accessible and entertaining to people of all ages. With this promotion, we’re showcasing our unique resources for kids and hope to inspire a future generation of programmers, engineers, and all-around geeks. This is pretty much a no brainer—for the price of an Uber, you can get a slew of No Starch eBooks and contribute to charities that matter.”
