The announcement of the Second International NoCOUG SQL Challenge sponsored by Pythian and Apress has been published in the February 2011 issue of the NoCOUG Journal. See pages 18 and 19 for rules, details of the unsolvable riddle and prizes to be awarded to the smartest wizard who can reveal the secret message.
Last year’s challenge was a success with nine solutions from participants in seven countries and three continents. The results of the previous challenge are available can be read here. We’re proud to say Andre Araujo, located in Pythian’s Australian office, was one of those nine.
This year, we expect more Pythians to challenge the community.
Good luck to all, and may the best Es-Cue-El practitioner win!
