I’ve never asked Bob if he actually has a PhD, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he does in being Awesome. Either-way, he deserves the Dr. title for all the great work he does on his site, speaking at conferences and in his writing.
Currently Bob is enjoying his semi-annual holiday at Euro Disney with his two kids Erik Mark Pascal and Natasha Louise Delphine. Yes, those are their actual names! So cool.
I’ve met Bob a few times, once when I was in the Netherlands for the Software Development Conference. That was a great treat, and Bob was amazing to work with. I’ve ran into him at various conferences too.
The most recent time I met Bob was when he was hosting the Delphi Developer Days with Cary Jensen. I was one of the guest speakers. I love the Delphi Developer Days events because they are always full of great technical content, and it is a great opportunity to visit with amazing people like Bob.
Bob is a great guy and an amazing MVP. You can follow his Delphi Notes Weblog, check out his Training and Consultancy events, or his Delphi Clinic for the latest news. If you buy Delphi or RAD Studio from his Webshop then he also includes some of his courseware.
Please join me in thanking Dr. Bob for all he does! He is an outstanding MVP and a great guy.
