I recently read through this short O'Reilly eBook by Dani Norden. It walks you through setting up a development stack, using a command line interface, Git and Drush. All the great time-saving tools for designers and developers.
I found this posted in the Drupal group on LinkedIn today. I think it's a neat idea and like the TimOnWeb blog says:
"We Drupal people, we love to share, this is in our blood and this is an underlying power which drives Drupal community, do something and share with others!"
