If you are registered for the SharePoint Conference 2012 in Las Vegas, consider nominating your organization for a dedicated FREE hour of solution-design consultation with Microsoft product experts.
These Design Time sessions are intended to help IT professionals and developers envision and plan solutions based on SharePoint 2013 products.
If you are selected, you will meet with one or more experts (Microsoft product-team members, consultants, or certified subject-matter experts) to discuss your solution goals, get advice on current challenges, and envision how to enhance your solution using SharePoint 2013 products. SharePoint documentation team members (who publish content on TechNet, MSDN, and Office.com) will facilitate the sessions.
Full details are available in this blog post.
