I have posted slides from my VSLive! talk here. This talk focused on deploying master pages, content types, and layout pages using Visual Studio 2010 and discussed how to use these assets with SharePoint as a content management server.
Thanks to all that attended, it was a great session with a bunch of great questions. Download the slides!
