For instance, I see (via Brian Goldfarb's blog) that not only is the ASP.NET 2.0 webcast series free, but you can actually get some great swag for watching: Visual Studio 2005, a book, hosting and more.
And that's not the only place you can go to upgrade your developers skills. Go to http://www.thedifferenceisobviousvb05.com and attend the Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 Webcast Series or register for a Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 E-Learning course. It's good training, and you'll have the chance to win a complimentary Visual Studio 2005 Discovery Pack.
Scott Guthrie has also put together a great list of ASP.NET 2.0 tutorial videos in his blog. These are code-focused (no slides or marketing at all, just lots of code) walkthroughs, and are a great way to get to know some of the new features in ASP.NET 2.0.
I don't want to leave SQL off the video training list. Microsoft Learning has several free, in-depth E-Learning courses for database administrators and developers, as well as business intelligence developers.

Some online tutorials for .Net 2.0
