Do Less. Get More. Develop on SharePoint.
That’s the tag line for the new Silverlight-enhanced developer portal for SharePoint (an official Microsoft website)
There are Whitepapers, Virtual Labs, Web casts, Screen casts, Quickstarts & other resources.
You can also download a SharePoint development VPC with all the tools you need to get started already installed.
Looks like a great source of information, with screen-casts, download samples, quick-start code and online Virtual Labs.

In this topic you will learn about building simple web parts for SharePoint and how to connect them back to SharePoint site data.
This topic then has the following links :
Some great developer training, and information for new-comers. This has been rather lacking for some time, with the MSDN and TechNet resources as the only content from Microsoft until now.
Looks great – will have to get into some WebCasts and Samples.
