We had to wait quite a while to get the results, but they were announced today at the Database Systems 2006 conference in Leiden, The Netherlands. We finished 4th!
Here is the top 6 out of 15 competitors (7 through 15 weren’t mentioned):
Some noteworthy facts about these results:
- The winning team scored about 2/3 of the points that could be won.
- Second team had only 1/2 of the points.
- We were the highest scoring Microsoft technologies based team, ever.
Congratulations to the winners CrossmarX, a young and nice 4-people company who have a JDK 1.5 based implementation. We had a good long talk. They really deserve first place. And kudos go to Frans Bouma, creator of LLBLGen Pro, the n-tier generator and O/R mapper. He was kind enough to provide us with a license for his tool, so we could use that for the race. (Paul, your O/R mapper next time?)
