About Rob Farley
I'm Rob Farley. I run LobsterPot Solutions, a Gold Partner SQL Server and Business Intelligence consultancy in Adelaide, Australia. I present regularly at PASS chapters and conferences such as TechEd Australia, SQL PASS, and SQLBits (UK) - including precon seminars - and head up the Adelaide SQL Server User Group. I'm an MCT, MCM, APS/PDW Trainer, and have been a SQL Server MVP since 2006.
Over the years I've helped create several of the MCP exams, written two chapters for the book SQL Server MVP Deep Dives (Manning, 2009) and one for SQL Server MVP Deep Dives 2, Volume 2 (Manning, 2011), and co-wrote Professional SQL Server 2012 Internals and Troubleshooting. I was a director of SQLPASS from 2011-2013, having been made a Board Advisor and subsequently elected to be a director by the PASS Community.
