The events are scheduled for

  • Oracle Database Thursday 8th Feb, 2023 at 2pm UTC
  • Logic Thursday 15th Feb, 2023 at 2pm UTC

The championships are a chance to find out who has the best logical deduction skills and Oracle Database knowledge. These timed competitions give players 45 minutes to answer all questions. Highest ranking goes to the players who get the most correct in the shortest period of time.

To celebrate the launch of Oracle Database 23c Free last year, the database questions will cover features added in the 23c release.

The qualifying players for each tournament are listed below. The number in parentheses after their names are the number of previous championships they have qualified for.

Congratulations to everyone who put in the work and dedication to be in the top 50. Good luck in the upcoming competitions if you qualified!

Think you've got what it takes to compete? Take the weekly Oracle Database quizzes and logic puzzles for your chance to qualify for the next playoffs!
