Announcing the 2017 SQL and Database Design Championships Winners on Oracle Dev Gym

Chris Saxon
Developer Advocate

The dust has settled. The results are in. It's time to announce the winners of the Oracle Dev Gym annual championships for SQL and Database Design!

Both competitions took place over a series of five quizzes. These pushed players to the limits of their knowledge of Oracle Database, covering a wide range of topics. These included SQL pattern matching, object-relational features, and JSON in the database.

A huge thanks to ACED Kim Berg Hansen, author of the SQL quizzes. For over seven years he's created weekly, high-quality quizzes. These have helped thousands of people learn how to write better SQL.

And now, onto the winners!

1st Place: mentzel.iudith of Israel

Huge congratulations to long-time player Iudith Mentzel for taking the top spot in both competitions! Her dedication to learning how Oracle Database works and improving her skills is outstanding. She thoroughly deserves both awards.

I also want to give supreme thanks to Elic. His efforts in reviewing the quizzes once again ensured a top-quality competition to challenge the contestants.

Think you've got what it takes to win next year's championships?

To qualify you need to be a top-ranking player in the ongoing weekly quizzes in 2018. Head over to the Oracle Dev Gym to take part, learn and join the fun!
