Adopt a Komodo: Help Conservation Efforts this Spring with Komodo IDE

[[{“type”:”media”,”view_mode”:”media_original”,”fid”:”494″,”attributes”:{“alt”:””,”class”:”media-image”,”height”:”130″,”width”:”232″}}]]This month, ActiveState is running a Komodo IDE fundraiser. $50 of each license sold of Komodo IDE or ActivePerl/Tcl Pro Studio will go towards efforts for the conservation of endangered species such as the Komodo Dragon.

As a thank you gift, each customer will receive a gift bag containing an official certificate and an awesome Komodo plushie!


Why the Promotion?

The Komodo Dragon is a marvel of nature. It is the world's largest living species of lizard, and one of the last surviving species of megafauna from the Pleistocene.

Given this level of awesomeness, we couldn't help but adopt the Komodo at ActiveState as a powerful symbol for our products. But that association also warrants a recognition of the importance of the natural world, and how it still resonates with us even as a technological skilled society.

Indeed, as a company of developers, we have a tendency to appreciate the natural world through our various pursuits in photography, astronomy or even a general interest in scientific discovery.

For that reason, surely we can contribute a small sum of our fortunes for a worthy cause: the preservation of mighty creatures that inspire our imagination and drive to innovate.

How Does It Work?

It's easy!

  1. Purchase a new license of Komodo IDE, ActivePerl Pro Studio, or ActiveTcl Pro Studio. If you would prefer a formal quote or have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
  2. After your transaction, you will receive an email prompting you to claim your Komodo Adoption Kit.

Claim it and expect to receive the awesome Komodo plushie and certificate within a month. Actual Komodo Dragon reproduction cycles are 7-8 months, but you don't want to hear the rest of the details.

This promotion is limited to the first 100 customers who claim their kit, but we're willing to extend it based on demand.

So there you have it. A great development product, a noble cause and a cuddly desktop critter to show your pride in both.

Long Live the Komodo!
