I just saw a tweet from Rob Windsor, VB MVP that he produced some How Do I videos on SharePoint and they were released on MSDN. Rob is an excellent trainer so I highly recommend them:
How Do I: Use the SharePoint 2010 Object Models?
How Do I: Build a SharePoint Feature with Visual Studio 2010?
We also have a bunch here as well that I would recommend if you’re getting started with SharePoint in Visual Studio 2010:
#1 | How Do I: Create Visual Web Parts for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #2 | How Do I: Create Sequential Workflows for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #3 | How Do I: Create State Machine Workflows for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #4 | How Do I: Create Event Receivers for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #5 | How Do I: Create Content Types for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #6 | How Do I: Create List Definitions for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #7 | How Do I: Create Site Definitions for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010? #8 | How Do I: Import a SharePoint Site Definition using Visual Studio 2010? #9 | How Do I: Create a Business Data Connectivity Model for SharePoint 2010 Using Visual Studio 2010?
You’ll find a lot more videos on the Visual Basic, Visual Studio, VSTO, and Office Developer Centers around Visual Studio, Office and SharePoint 2010 products.
Also take a look at these new Visual Studio 2010 resources, articles, samples, videos, + more!
It's wonderful that stuff is happening but.... What a shame we have to wait so long! The problems being addressed are Major Issues in large-scale Sharepoint Development. We're all swimming and building stuff and it may all be for naught...
@handerchief: be careful what you wish for. Already the RTM edition of SharePoint 2010 contains nasty errors that somehow "slipped by" whatever passes for "quality assurance" on the Microsoft SharePoint team. If you don't mind be branded a nuisance, just ask about the nasty , bug in TaxonomyPicker.ascx, just to name one example.
Thanks for your feedback but this isn't really a forum for tech support on SharePoint. If you have bugs to report to the SharePoint team please enter them on
If you need help getting them to the right folks please contact me with the bug IDs.

SharePoint is typically installed in larger organizations or business where team collaboration, content management, or other data and process workflows are needed to streamline the business. There are some data sheets on SharePoint here:
If you are a shop of 1 then you don't need SharePoint yourself, however if you want to expand your skillset for hire, this is one of the hottest Microsoft technologies in larger businesses today. It depends on where you want to focus your skills, this may or may not be right for you.
