A new Getting Started Tutorial for Workflow Manager 1.0 has been posted here:

This is a 3 step tutorial which covers creating a custom activity, using it in a workflow, and publishing and invoking the workflow. It covers the use of the HttpSend activity, several of the DynamicValue activities, and also includes troubleshooting steps for common issues related to authoring, publishing, and invoking workflows.
There is also a video walkthrough and a download of the completed tutorial here:
