Two SQL MVP awardees at LobsterPot Solutions

LobsterPot Solutions is the only company with two current Australian SQL MVP awardees on staff, after Julie Koesmarno received her first Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award. She joins Rob Farley, who is now an eight-time awardee, as one of only ten SQL MVPs in Australia.


Microsoft gives this award to “exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others” (mvp.microsoft.com). The award’s status is extremely high, making it one of the most sought-after awards in the Microsoft ecosystem. Julie joins an elite crew in receiving this, no doubt influenced by her involvement in technical communities in roles such as conference presenter, webinar host and community leader.

Recently relocated to Canberra, Julie is about to jet off to present about Business Intelligence at the PASS Summit, this year held in North Carolina. The PASS Summit is the largest SQL Server event in the world.
