Something new for MMS 2012: MVP Labs

This year like many past MMS experiences, Microsoft is adding new items. This year in particular is very cool in deed. For the first time MVPs are allowed to create Self-paced labs. I am creating a 15 min lab on an introduction to Console Extensions in 2012. This compliments my session on Console Extensions. The labs are listed on the Speakers bio and soon should be listed for the attendees to sign up. The MVPs just need to get everything done and working.
