Third International NoCOUG SQL & NoSQL Challenge


The Third International NoCOUG SQL & NoSQL Challenge sponsored by Pythian—Love Your Data™ will be revealed on Monday, May 21 at 9 AM PST at http://bit.ly/JvJS46. In this challenge, the Wicked Witch of the West needs help in creating a magic spell to ensure that the Third Annual Witching & Wizarding Ball is a grand success and the NoSQL community is invited to the party. The winner will receive the August Order of the Wooden Pretzel in keeping with Steven Feuerstein’s observation that “some people can perform seeming miracles with straight SQL, but the statements end up looking like pretzels created by somebody who is experimenting with hallucinogens.” There are currently four knights of the August Order of the Wooden Pretzel: Alberto Dell’Era (Italy) who won the first challenge in 2009 and Andre Araujo (Australia), Rob van Wijk (Netherlands), and Ilya Chuhnakov (Russia) who won the second challenge in 2011.
