Robert left Microsoft as of April 15, 2005 to return to the consulting sector. This was posted on his Microsoft blog:
After 8 ˝ years at Microsoft it is time to move on to the next phase of my career. April 15 is my last full day at Microsoft. I am going to pursue the life of the independent contractor and return to something that has been a passion of mine since before I came to Microsoft: teaching developers how to use our products.
I think Visual Studio 2005, aka Whidbey, is a fantastic product and I believe it is going to be a smash hit. I think there is an important role to be played by people who help others learn how to use it to its fullest. I want to be one of those people.
I plan on staying part of the developer community. You’ll see me on the newsgroups and forums. You’ll see me speaking at conferences and writing articles (and maybe a book?). And I will create a new blog and post to it on a regular basis.
Robert Green is currently a Product Manager, Developer Tools, at Microsoft. He's a FoxPro evangelist and, along with David Lazar, has lead Visual FoxPro out of the woods and into a sunnier place in the Microsoft product line.
Robert has participated in the keynote address at the past several DevCon's, as well as starred in a VFP promotional video a few years ago.
Among his contributions prior to joining Microsoft, he was among this community's very best client server consultants, and one of his contributions is a book in the Pros Talk Visual FoxPro series titled Developing Client Server Applications With Visual FoxPro And SQLServer
