Best way to learn TC

I am completely new to TC. For that matter I rather green at creating a build system. In my past life I was a ClearCase admin.

I have read the manuals and even ran simple builds of our code in TC.

Can someone point me to other documentation, white papers, or some real world examples I can look at?

Any recommendations appreciated.

I have a system installed, but I think I don't know my way around nearly enough.

One thing that's not helping as much as it should is the Teamcity documentation pages and the bug / board pages.

Googling is not as helpful as it could be due to the many many duplicated results, one for each version of TC.

Landing on a TC doc page is only helpful if one notes that almost every page (all?) in newer versions have only a slightly different url.

For example, these are all valid;

http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/TCD7/TeamCity+Documentation

http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/TCD6.5/TeamCity+Documentation

http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/TCD6/TeamCity+Documentation

The two things I've done so far that helped alot were;

1.Reading the series of posts on deployment that uses Teamcity;

2.The book on continuous integration in general for dot net,

I also made myself some URL's;

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/teamcity?sort=unanswered&pagesize=50

http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/TW

http://devnet.jetbrains.net/community/teamcity?view=discussions

(Note that the forum has only two boards: General and Plugins.)
