A quick special edition post, the Channel 9 team has been working on brining a little fun to our everyday development and today it's being released to beta. I mean who doesn't like Achievements?!
Yep Achievements! In Visual Studio!
You can now download a Extension that adds Achievements to your Visual Studio. As you code, you earn. And of course there's a leader-board, widgets and even a community created WP7 app!

Then, if you haven't already, Download it today from the Visual Studio Gallery
I mentioned a community WP7 app (oh and he's made the source available too)? Check out these posts from a Friend of Channel 9, Den Delimarsky
