Participants in the Q4 2013 PL/SQL Championship

The following players will be invited to participate in the Q4 2013 championship. The number in parentheses after their names are the number of playoffs in which they have already participated.

Congratulations to all listed below on their accomplishment and best of luck in the upcoming competition!

We currently plan to hold the championship on 27 February (all at the same time world-wide), and are waiting for confirmation from players that this day will work.

Note: we accepted the top 50 ranked players into the SQL and Logic championships, but still only the top 25 players for PL/SQL. We are going to shift to the top 50 for all championships, starting this quarter, but did not feel it was appropriate to switch the rules for the PL/SQL championship after the fact.

See the FAQ for an explanation of the three ways a player can qualify for the playoff.

  1. Hi,

    Strange thing. Received invitations to PLSQL challenge and Logic challenge today, but can't see my name on the PLSQL list here? Did I get that email by mistake?


  2. Thanks for asking, Ingimundur. When I first sent out the emails for the Logic challenge, it incorrectly said the "PL/SQL Championship". Please ignore that email - you and everyone else!
