The mission of Shane Bow is to share some code examples and programming knowledge acquired by the owner over a widely varied fifty-plus year career in software related endeavors — as well as some of the cool stuff my kids are working on.

The collection of data about you is not our objective. In fact, aside from being mildly curious about which countries our visitors reside in, we do not store any tracking information about you. If you give us your phone number we keep it on file in order to return your calls. And we keep your email address so that we can correspond and you can login to the site.

Currently there is no newsletter, nor any targeted advertising. If in the future, we add these to the site there will be a very simple way to opt out on the account settings page!
