It is my pleasure to announce the winners in the Week 3 Database Corruption Challenge. But first how about a rundown of challenge.

The challenge was issued at 10:00pm (pacific time) on Friday night. Yes, this was a difficult time for those on the East coast of the US, and if you are from EST, next week I promise the time will be better for you. Trying to switch up the times to give everyone across the planet a fair advantage. Those who had signed up for my Newsletter received early notification of when the corruption challenge would occur, but not details on what the challenge would be.

Once the challenge was issued, I received a couple of partial submissions, one contained the correct steps, but no results. The second one contained the right results, but was missing the steps to do it. The first correct submission that contained the steps, and proof that it was done correctly came in 37 minutes after the contest had started.  It was almost an hour later before the next winning solution was sent in.

The winner this week was Randolph West, his solution is posted as a separate post here. This was Randolph’s first time competing in the Corruption Challenge, and he took the victory for this week.

Over the weekend several winning solutions continued to come in. Overall there were 29 winning solutions submitted this week, this largest number of any of the corruption challenges so far.
