A better way to say 'thank you'.

As soon as I have a free 3D printer, I will send you 3D printed keychain with STOS, AMOS or Clickteam Fusion logo.

In one of my posts I describe the long term plan for AMOS 2. My goal is to turn AMOS 2 into a commercial product in two years time and live from it in the future.
I firmly believe that a modern Basic language has a lot of chances to be a success, specially to teach programming in a simple way to kids.
When and if money comes, I will set aside a percentage on my personal earning and start to refund Patrons. With interest, the higher the pledge the higher the interest (link to calculations to come).
and... as soon  as I have a free 3D printer, I will print you a full size AMOS, STOS of Fusion logo and send it to you, as well as a key-chain.

Now we are talking more serious money and real investmentand real support. In one of my posts I describe the long term plan for AMOS 2. My goal is to turn AMOS 2 into a commercial product in two years time and live from it in the future.
I firmly believe that a modern Basic language has a lot of chances to be a success, specially to teach programming in a simple way to kids.
Read the previous Tier description for pledge refunding when time comes...

Included in this tier is a free boxed version of AMOS-2 in December, by mail or at the AMOS Party in London or Warsaw, providing it can be organized...

I will also print you a full size AMOS, STOS of Fusion logo and send it to you, as well as a key-chain as soon as I have a 3D printer free.

About Francois Lionet

Welcome to this Patreon!

This Patreon is destined to allow me to finance the transition to the life in Poland and develop the next version of AMOS Basic on modern computers.

I have grand plans for it, it will be an amazing tool that I want at the same time simple as the original was, and powerful as modern machines can be. It will understand most of all .AMOS programs, and allow you to republish them in a click, and they will work everywhere on everything, thanks to the magic of Javascript and HTML5.

A modern AMOS 3D with WebGL is of-course in the plans, as well other fantastic things with the Friend platform and Friend Network.

It is also a way, for the people who want it, and only those of course, the principle of Patreon, to somehow 'give back' a little of the positive influence my work had on their lives. And a way for all the pirates :) to finally say 'Thank you, worth a couple of floppies'. ;)

I have also started a blog called 'The Story of AMOS' (https://storyofamos.blogspot.com) where I will tell you all the stories of day to day life of the geek I was and still am. The frequency of the post is 'when I feel like it', so please do not wait for regular columns..

Another plan is to make physical replicas of the AMOS 1.3 and AMOSPro boxes, and/or a physical version of AMOS 2. Yet this one has to be carefully studied as making a physical product is a lot more work than a virtual one and necessitates real investments in both money, talent and time... be sure that Patrons will be rewarded by rebates and even free after a certain level.

With me finally being able to focus on one thing besides my work, things are going to move.

Thank you in advance.

Francois
