LobsterPot Solutions is a company that is fully dedicated to supporting the SQL Server community.

World Series of PASS

I’m sure Americans understand the joke that is the “World Series” of baseball. Everyone else rolls their eyes and knows that this ‘world’ means North America.

PASS Summit pre-conference seminar by Rob Farley

The annual PASS Summit in North America is the largest SQL Server event in the world. There is no other event on its scale anywhere. So it is with great honour that LobsterPot’s Rob Farley will be delivering a pre-conference seminar at the 2011 event, held in Seattle from October 11-14.

New hires, new site, new location

Exciting times for LobsterPot – Martin & Heidi joining the team, a new website (lobsterpot.com.au), and a Melbourne presence!

LobsterPot submissions for SQLPASS

May 6th, 2011 (by Rob Farley) My guys are great! When PASS started accepting abstract submissions for their Summit (in October this year), some of the LobsterPot employees immediately started looking into ideas for talks they could do. We rate communication as one of our key values at LobsterPot, and all my staff are keen […]

On technical talent

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 3:15 PM (Rob Farley’s Blog Post) In honour of the regular T-SQL Tuesday blogging, the UnSQL theme started, looking at topics that were not directly SQL related, but nevertheless quite interesting.

Microsoft SQL Server code-named ‘Denali’ – CTP1

Tuesday, November 09 2010 9:48 PM (David Gardiner’s Blog Post) Wednesday morning I’ll be giving a quick summary of all the new announcements from the 2010 PASS Summit in Seattle (courtesy of LobsterPot’s on-the-spot reporters Rob and Roger) to the Adelaide leg of the PDC10 Roadshow. In preparation for that, I did a quick search […]

Why bother with database professionals?

Tuesday, November 02, 2010 5:49 PM (Rob Farley’s Blog Post) Considering that I run a database consultancy, I should be fairly biased on this question, and suggest that you can’t possibly cope without database professionals – except that I don’t really believe it all that much. I do believe it, and I’ll demonstrate why in […]

Time away from a growing company

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 3:14 PM (from Rob Farley’s Blog) At LobsterPot, I’m very blessed to have excellent staff working for me. Someone asked me just today why we haven’t grown more than we have in the past year, but in just over a year I’ve brought on 3 staff members and have another one […]
