Hi everyone!

Thanks so much for making your way to the 4DMethod Patreon page. My name is Brent, and I am a 4D developer in Chicago, Illinois in the US. Even though 4D has been around for 30+ years and is in use worldwide, it is still a niche programming language. You likely will not find hundreds of skilled developers in your city to meet with or discuss current topics, however interacting and collaborating with other people in your field is vital for professionals.

So I tried something new by starting 4DMethod to create an online community via Google Hangouts where 4D developers and users from around the world can get together on a regular basis, discuss current industry news, and demo work that they would like to share. We have been at it for several years now and have accumulated a long list of recorded demos from developers and users.

I don’t expect or assume anyone will contribute any more to 4DMethod than simply taking part and joining the discussion.  That is appreciated in and of itself.  But if you feel like contributing more, it will help provide me with the time and resources to keep the demos, meetings, and shared code coming and high in quality.

Through Patreon, you can contribute whatever you like on a monthly basis.  You can choose from 4 levels of reward.  Each level includes all previous rewards, except for the limited ones!
