I'm doing two webinars in January with DevExpress that will help developers new to SharePoint 2010 learn the general landscape for development as well as how to do a common thing: read/write data to lists. In the data access one I'll spend a bit of time showing how to get data out of SharePoint using the OOTB RESTful OData service, Silverlight 4 and the DevExpress Silverlight components.
