How will the tournament work?
Matches will take place in the form of an FME Workspace. The two competing data formats will enter the workflow with weighted odds based on how popular the format is in our usage statistics.
The more popular the format, the better the chance of winning – but remember that upsets are known to happen!
Group Stage matches will occur from June 2-9, 2014. Each day, one group will have 6 matches to decide which formats move on to the Knockout Round. The deadline to enter your picks is June 2 at 3:59am PDT / 10:59am GMT.
The Knockout Round will take place June 11-12, 2014, at the quick pace of a game per hour during the FME International User Conference 2014. (But don’t worry, you don’t need to be in Vancouver to win.)
