I recently started my first challenge for mindsumo.com, and I have to say that it was quite interesting. It was about a database design challenge. While the domain of the problem itself has many apparent issues, exploring public ideas is a good way to get feedback and brainstorm on the database issue altogether. This is a good website to just go and put your ideas out about the problems you choose to solve. The medical database problem is in itself a challenge as many unknowns are involved in the case. It depends right from the structure of the medical company to the policies it holds about staffs, insurance and patients, which is arguably a complex relation in this case.The generalization of such databse relationships can be difficult in many cases such as the problem at mindsumo.com . Overall it was a good experience.
