There's a rich portion of the 4D developer and user community that goes well beyond officially provided resources. A thriving pool of web sites and user groups around the world ensure you get a view from an angle beyond the company line.

4D in the Community

Every year, 4D helps important non-profit entities bridge the gap between being in a financial pinch and being a more efficiently run organization dependent of less cash.

In the view of some nonprofits, software is often considered an administrative expense – something many boards of directors don't want to pay for. 4D recognizes that challenge and that's why we have continued to donate software and other resources to worthy non-profits, with academic and non-profit/NGO programs in place around the world.

They're Happy with 4D

Everyone from tiny shops to Fortune 500 companies to national governments use 4D for their critical business solutions. See who's using 4D, and is proud to say it!

    4D’s cross-platform compatibility and consistency is legendary. But now, there's more than just two main platforms. Each browser, each smartphone, and each rich internet technology is a new platform. What they have in common are standards – and 4D is glad to support them.
