Today LobsterPot Solutions sets a new first. We are the only company to ever employ three current Australian SQL MVPs, giving us four awardees in total. Congratulations to Martin Cairney who joins Julie Koesmarno (AUS), Ted Krueger (USA) and me (AUS) as recipients of this prestigious award. This demonstrates LobsterPot's ongoing commitment to the SQL Server community, that show that our consultants are truly influential in the SQL world.
From Microsoft's website about MVPs:
Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs are exceptional community leaders who actively share their high-quality, real-world deep technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft. They are committed to helping others get the most out of their experience with Microsoft products and technologies.
Technical communities play a vital role in the adoption and advancement of technology—and in helping our customers do great things with our products. The MVP Award provides us with an opportunity to say thank you and to bring the voice of community into our technology roadmap.
This fits very closely with LobsterPot's desire to help people with their data story. We help with the adoption and advancement of SQL Server, and help customers do great things with data. It's no surprise that we see a high proportion of LobsterPot consultants are MVP awardees.
