Database Journal has a good list of some upcoming SQL Server related live webcasts scheduled for July (on MSDN and TechNet):

Some that should be of interest for developers using ADO.NET:

  • What I Wish Developers Knew About Writing Queries in SQL Server 2005
  • What I Wish Developers Knew About Writing Applications for SQL Server 2005
  • Enhancements to the SqlClient Data Provider (ref docs here)
  • Implementing a Data Access Layer with the Visual Studio 2005 Dataset Designer (see this recent article for ASP.NET 'Creating a Data Access Layer')
