Last year's EMEA PUG Challenge included a "DBA Challenge" which was a great success. This led Peter Judge to start a Programmer's Challenge during the US PUG Challenge (in June), and I confirm that it was a great success (alas, not for me). 

So with that in mind I'm happy to announce the Programmer's Challenge at the 2017 EMEA PUG Challenge. Your mission is to write ABL code that wins an Othello (or Reversi) tournament at the PUG Challenge next week.

Oh and it is open to DBA types too, although they might prefer the DBA Challenge.
