The T414 Sitecore Best Practices Series is a screencast overview of the foundational pieces we use at Hanson Dodge Creative in our Sitecore development projects. Part 2 dives into the specifics of Visual Studio solution structure, TDS project configuration, and using TDS.
Part 1: Introduction to TDS is available here.
Part 3: Sublayout Development with Custom Items and Scriptlets is available here.
Sean Holmesby of Igloo Digital has a nice series of posts that also get into some details of TDS use and configuration, including some known "gotchas" that you may run into.
