The VSTS Ranger group at Microsoft (of which I am happily a member) just released a ton of guidance documentation around VSTS/TFS 2010. Check out Jeff Beehler’s blog post for more info and links to all of the content on CodePlex:
The following virtual images were just released and will give you the ability to try the new capabilities of VSTS and TFS in a safe, preinstalled environment. You just need to spend a little time doing the downloads – each download page consists of an EXE and several RAR files that will put themselves together into Hyper-V or VPC images.
Download from Microsoft Downloads:
Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 (Hyper-V) Got W2K8 with Hyper-V loaded? This one’s for you.

Not sure where to start? How bout this…

- Parallel Extensions
- Windows Communication Foundation
- Windows Workflow
- Windows Presentation Foundation
- ASP.NET 4
- Windows 7

The Training Kit is pretty extensive and works with Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 and .NET Framework 4 Beta 2.
All this should keep you busy for a little while anyway.
