About Hex Central

Hex Central is a collection of articles by a group of experienced software developers, website designers and webmasters in the USA and UK. Like most techy people, we love learning new things about the tools and technologies that we use in our work. The aim of this site is to share that information with you.

All the material on the site is available with our compliments. We hope you will benefit from it as much as we have.

We welcome contributions of articles from knowledgeable professionals. Please get in touch if you would like to submit an article.

Full disclosure

The cost of running Hex Central is partly met by commercial advertising. We might display ads at various places on the site, although we strive only to show ads that are likely to be relevant to our visitors. We take care to distinguish advertising from editorial content, and we will never accept payment for recommending a particular product or service without disclosing that fact.

Similarly, we might display links to third-party merchants from which visitors can order goods and services. We might receive commissions from such merchants in respect of orders which our visitors place via these links.

Commissions and advertising help pay for the cost of running Hex Central and to keep it completely free to visitors.
