Nice presentation of new VS 2010 features as well as great posters on important information like TFS "capacity planning" and "security and roles". The Scrum poster is also a favorite of mine.

Great content by the Rangers! Super-useful for showing VS2010 ALM to newbies or at quick customer initiations. I loved the testing posters!
