Giant leap for developers
December 8, 2004 11:52 AM   Subscribe

Developer in space? Oracle has announced sweepstakes to send a developer into orbit. Answer a quiz and win a sub-orbital space flight. Contest is open to software developers who work with Oracle software in connection with their employment. Start cramming. Good luck! (And for the rest, with a $10,000 deposit for the $98,000 ticket, nothing stops us from booking our own space flight with Space Adventures.)

I'm sure the current administrator would be eager to offer this prize to Clinton Curtis.

The Grand Prize includes high- risk travel. In addition to the liability release supplied by the Sponsor, the winner will be required to sign a general waiver and liability release from Space Adventures Ltd. as a prerequisite to the fulfillment of the prize.

I'll bet that's a whopper of a waiver. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall where lawyers gathered to write it. Must have been a hoot.

Can we send the Oracle sales and marketing team into space?

How about if they get the answers wrong we shoot 'em into orbit?

What do you call it when Oracle shoots a software developer into space?

A good start.

I'll be here all week, folks.

All the geeks on MeFi, I'm surprised there are no Oracle developers around here stepping up for this contest. Whasamatta? Scared of a little quiz? Or, afraid you might...WIN?
