Surfing on Microsoft's website a few days ago, I've found a link called "Got 15 minutes? Learn a new task" (yeah, I have 15 minutes :-) ). Followed the link and discovered "How Do I?".

"How Do I?" is a section of MSDN on which video tutorials are posted. These tutorials are for programmers and show how to do various things using Microsoft tools and technologies (Visual Studio, .NET Framework, ASP.NET, Windows Mobile, etc). The clips vary from 5 to 40 minutes.

Every clip deals with one topic and most of them consist of one movie.

There are 12 categories:

  • ASP.NET
  • ASP.NET Ajax
  • Devices
  • Native Coding
  • Security
  • Silverlight
  • Visual Basic
  • Visual Studio Extensibility
  • Visual Studio Team System
  • Visual Studio Tools for Applications
  • Windows Forms
  • Windows Presentation Foundation

From all the clips I recommend (the other are not bad but these I liked most):

Devices: Programmatically Monitor for a Specific Time of Day Without Draining a Device Battery
Devices: Hide Standard Device UI Elements in a .NET Compact Framework Application
Security: Attach Client Credentials to a Web Service Call For Security
Security: Add Security to Applications by Digitally Signing XAML Documents
Security: Increase Web Site Security by Integrating Cardspace and ASP.NET for Login

Oh, and one more thing. All tutorials can be downloaded and most of them include source code ;-)
