Humble Book Bundle: Data Science from No Starch Press

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / AGILITYPR.NEWS / December 02, 2019 / San Francisco, CA (December 2, 2019)—No Starch Press, one of the world’s premier tech publishers, is partnering with Humble Bundle yet again to offer a selection of books that cater to the data devotee. Humble Bundle: Data Science continues this hugely popular collaboration which has brought in millions of dollars in revenue and raised well over $2 million for charitable organizations and their causes.


The Data Science Humble Bundle benefits the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) and the No Starch Press Foundation.


This is the first time that the company will be pairing with the NCAC for a Humble Bundle and it is excited to support this non-profit organization's important work. For over 40 years, the NCAC has engaged in direct advocacy and education to support the First Amendment principles, promoting freedom of thought, inquiry, and expression and opposing censorship in all its forms. Today, the NCAC continues its mission to uphold First Amendment rights while also working with community members across a range of fields to resolve censorship controversies that impinge upon constitutionally-protected freedom of expression.


According to No Starch Press founder, Bill Pollock, “No Starch Press strives to create the best in technical information and we are strong supporters of electronic freedom. I’m excited to support NCAC with this bundle because I believe in their mission to support ‘freedom of thought, inquiry, and expression and oppose censorship in all its forms.’ Like any powerful technology, data science is a double-edged sword. Let us use it for good, not ill.”


No Starch Press is also excited to continue its support of the No Starch Press Foundation -- a Foundation built by the company’s founder, Bill Pollock, to support the worldwide hacker community and certain STEM initiatives. Low-income and underserved populations are of particular concern to the Foundation.


This ebook bundle—valued at $374—includes fan favorites like Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! and Art of R Programming, new releases like Bayesian Statistics the Fun Way, and best-sellers like Python Crash Course, 2nd Edition.


Like all Humble Bundle promotions, customers choose how much of their money goes to the publisher, Humble Bundle, and the benefiting nonprofit. With Humble Bundle's pay-what-you-want model, readers pay whatever price they think is fair for each bundle, making it a true bargain.
