Last Thursday the LA Zoo & Botanical Gardens tweeted that they’d successfully hatched 22 Komodo dragons. That’s awesome! Congratulations to the Zoo staff on their efforts. In celebration, we’ll donate 20% of all Komodo IDE sales for Tuesday, Aug 31st to the LA Zoo.
Update September 1/10: Thanks to everyone who purchased a copy of Komodo IDE yesterday! 20% of our online Komodo sales was donated to the Zoo. If you’d like to contribute you can donate to them online. They’ve also posted a video of the hatchlings in action. Adorable!
Name a dragon
Given the techie audience for Komodo and the ActiveState blog, we thought that (for fun) we could come up with a list of good dragon names for those 22 cuties. Do you have any fond memories of dragons from your Fantasy genre reading? Smaug? Others? Please suggest a LA Zoo Komodo dragon baby in the comment section below.
