I'm planning to start up an INETA (http://ineta.org
) usergroup on my campus. I'm pretty new to .NET technology but very excited to promote it among fellow students. I have MS Press books on many of the .NET topics but as a student with a full courseload, I can only skim some of them. I can search Google and find some general pages (http://dotnetjunkies.com
for example), but I need more specific information. I have gotten some code examples together already which I put on my personal web page (http://personal.stevens.edu/~dlipsy/dotnet/
I'm specifically looking for examples of .NET technology at work. Maybe it is explained best by a link (possibly accompanied with a downloadable project written in a .NET language), or PPT slides, or books that explain implementation of the finest aspects of .NET. Maybe you have code examples that showcase a useful feature of .NET - that would be great, too! Ideally, it should be something that would interest students who have done little to no GUI programming, but have had 2+ years of programming in C/C++/Java already...and something that could be built on in order to impress employers!
Any help would be much appreciated! If you want to send me any info that may not be currently online, feel free to e-mail me (I can accept attachments up to 25 MB) at:

P.S. I am definitely willing to split the points if there are a couple very good answers. Also, I'm sorry I couldn't make this question more points but I am new to Experts Exchange, so I don't even have 400 points yet.
