How to showcase .NET technology (Code examples, links, PPT slides, and so on) ?

Hello,

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:
dlipsy at stevens.edu

Thanks,
Dan Lipsy

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.

Dan,
Keep the points.  Here's a link to my links page, which has many good .NET resource links.

Several ideas

(1) Microsoft has TONS of webcasts available, both live and on-demand.  Perhaps some of them would be useful.
http://www.microsoft.com/seminar/events/webcasts/default.mspx

(2) Delegate.  Get other interested people to present a topic.  Perhaps some code on a particular namespace.

(3) Contact other INETA group leaders for .NET groups, and see if they're willing to share their experience, presentations, etc.
They've been finding presenters for their meetings for a long time.
(Stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before.)

(4) Seek local professionals (independent consultants, for example) to present on specific topics.

(5) Other good search terms are:
  dotnet tutorial
and
  dotnet "sample code"

Hello farsight and difala13,

Thanks for what you've given so far.  However, I'm looking for specific links, code examples, PPC presentations that you have found.  The webcasts are definitely a good link for me to check out more.  Some of your links, difala13, show code examples which should be very helpful.

How willing are local professionals to present .NET topics at a school?  How would I begin looking for them?  

Any more ideas?

Thanks,
Dan Lipsy

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
