Announcing participants in Oracle Dev Gym SQL Championship 2017

Another year, another Oracle Dev Gym SQL Annual Championship. Woohoo!

Players have exercised their mental muscles with the SQL puzzles throughout 2017. Congratulations to everybody digging in all year, trying to figure out the pretzelbenders of me and other quiz authors. And hopefully you've learned something as well, improving your SQL skills.

And a very special congratulations to the Top 50 in the "Select for SQL" Tournament in Oracle Dev Gym in 2017. It takes an effort solving the quizzes succesfully every week to be ranked high at the end of the year.

The Top 50 players are listed here and will be invited to participate in the Oracle SQL Annual Championship for 2017. (I'll just have to write some tough quizzes first.)

The number in parentheses after their names are the number of championships in which they have already participated. Amazing that some have made the championships all the years since the first in 2013.
