  • Not just for database geeks

    I feel like The Schemaverse tournament loses some potentially great players because of the tagline I foolishly created last year: "The tournament for the database geeks". If I called it "The programmers AI challenge" and made it obvious that you can play however you feel most comfortable pushing electrons around, the game would likely get a lot more interest from different skill sets.

    Let me clarify right now:
    You can play this game using whatever environment you want, it is just the game engine that is sitting in a database.

    I don't want to make the same mistake that I made last year so here is a list of who may actually have a great time competing in this tournament:
    • Developers (anything with a postgresql library, so... pretty much any language)
    • Artificial Intelligence Aficionados
    • Database/Application pen testers
    • DBAs/Alcoholics


    If this has maybe, just maybe, perked your interest but your not quite a believer yet, keep checking back here in the next couple weeks. We have a really exciting project in the works to show just how awesome this game can be to play without having to worry about that dreaded SQL element.

    A Ruby developer by the name of Sailias has created a bot that plays the Schemaverse. If your not a huge fan of SQL but still want to compete in the tournament you should definitely go take a look!

      Every Scav Hunt team should have a coder on it anyway. It is just good planning. Hear that Hunters!?
