There are a few very basic tutorials (snail belly-etc) in the help  
browser:
hdox://houdini/content/base/tutorials/

Hopefully sesi is working on some more advanced VOPs tutorials to  
include in the "Learning" section of the new website- For people who  
have been writing shaders for years VOPs are easy to jump into- For  
people new to CGI and Houdini, I think it is perhaps the most  
mysterious and confusing module in the package-

A few intro, intermediate and advanced tutorials could go a long way  
to help clear the fog for newcomers--
