StreamBase Systems, Inc., provider of the industry's fastest and most powerful real-time and historical complex event processing software, announced the official launch of an unprecedented strategic initiative, "The Quest for the Da Vinci Coder."  Co-sponsored by AMD, The Quest (, provides programmers, developers and business people with the opportunity to test-drive an enterprise-class complex event processing platform through a fun, interactive and intellectually stimulating competition.   

To kick-off The Quest for The Da Vinci Coder, StreamBase world-premiered the contest's movie trailer. The trailer, a parody of "The Da Vinci Code" movie, provides a humorous portrayal of the challenges faced by skilled software programmers, who typically write custom code to try and meet rapidly changing business demands for leveraging real-time information.  At the conclusion of the parody trailer, viewers are directed to a new Web site for The Quest, which features weekly puzzle-solving contests and a streaming data video game.  Contestants will also be prompted to download the StreamBase Developer Edition, which helps answer puzzles and provides access to sample applications for market data processing and trading analytics.  Additionally, sample quote and trading sample data are available to help jump-start the application development process.
