Last contest, which we had ran was in May and it had received amazing responses. I once again reached out to kind team of Embarcadero and they agreed to support the next contest. The contest has two steps and they are very simple. It took me a while to build contest, but it is a really fun one. I am very confident that once you try out the contest, you will love it.

Contest 1: T-SQL
Run following T-SQL script and observe the answer:
CAST(‘2015-01-01 14:48:34.69’ AS DATETIME) FirstVal,
CAST(‘2015-01-01 14:48:34:69’ AS DATETIME) SecondVal
When we look at the answer, there is a difference between the milliseconds part in the resutlset, whereas you can notice that in the SELECT statement I have specified different milliseconds part. The question is why there is a difference in the millisecond part even though I have same value selected?
