From today, Monday April 5th, the Schedule Builder tool on the MMS 2010 Communications Network (CommNet)  allows each attendee to reserve a place in up to six Instructor-led Lab sessions. This limit was previously three reservations per attendee. As attendees from previous years may remember, the Instructor Led Hands-on Labs (ILLs) at MMS are very popular and as space is limited many lab sessions will be fully booked well before the event opens.  This is especially true for the lab topics hosted on the opening day – Monday April 19th. http://www.mms-2010.com/public/Headlines.aspx Source: http://twitter.com/mmsteam

But if I say the keynote was both predictable and a bit boring I don’t think I’ll offend anyone. Better luck next year 🙂 My first real session was “What’s new in SP1 in ConfigMgr”. Not a “tech sexy” topic, but I think Wally did a good job. The focus was on Asset Intelligence 1.5 and the Intel AMT feature (Out of band management). After lunch I went to a…
