I’m David Cobb, I am a cloud consultant & technical instructor.


Consulting
Since 1994 I have been helping people and businesses solve problems with technology, primarily SQL Server and PowerShell. Since 2016 I have focused on automating in the cloud, and hold certifications in Azure and AWS. I’m continuously learning, while mentoring individuals and companies to build the skills to move their applications and business to the cloud.

Technical Instruction
I love developing talented people who are passionate about technology. I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) since 2002. I began my training career with a primary focus on SQL Server administration, querying and reporting, but my most recent training has focused on Azure Fundamentals and Azure Data Platform. I love to share technical knowledge, to dive with students into troubleshooting problems and increasing understanding so they can excel at their work. Here is some feedback I’ve received about recent training deliveries.

Learning
I love learning. I have learned much from the online community and my local user group community, and enjoy giving back by sharing what I’ve learned. When I began speaking at user groups, I focused on the database technology SQL Server and the scripting language PowerShell. I have since turned my focus to scripting in the Azure and AWS clouds. You can find the PDF slides and code from those presentations here on my Presentations Archive on GitHub

Background
Since my first helpdesk job back in 1994, I have been helping people to understand and solve problems with technology so they can succeed at their work.
Over my career I have since served in roles of web developer, technical trainer, DBA, system engineer and am growing into the role of cloud architect.
