The second round of the programming contest MemSQL start[c]up took place on August 3. The competition was performed on the platform Codeforces. 6 problems and 3 hours to solve them were given to 26 on-site and more than a thousand on-line participants. The 1st place in the official on-site round, which was held in Silicon Valley (USA), was taken by Petr Mitrichev, one of the World leaders of programming contest. The 4th place was taken by our company engineer Vladimir Chalyshev (an ACM ICPC World Final participant of 2012). We congratulate Vladimir who has proved again that excellent applied and contestant programmers work among our developers.
