I'm just starting to pick up genesis programming from scratch...what's the best document for someone to get started with the VDP?
On a side note, what are the best tutorials, etc for genesis programming in general?

You should be able to find quite a bit in the links there.
The official docs should provide enough information if you're just starting.
Tip: try to learn how to use DMA as soon as possible. Then set up a system such that all DMA transfers are queued in a list and then run them as soon as vblank starts. Most games do this, but for some reason none of the homebrew devkits have been designed for this, so you're on your own if you go this route.
Best docs are Charles MacDonald's ones
