There are a couple of upcoming events worth checking out in the Washington, D.C. area and to a city near you as well.
 
First off, we have the ISV Touchdown Briefings, which is a half day event that discusses Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).  This event runs from 8AM - 12PM and leaves half the day for another presentation.
 
Windows Presentation Foundation, formerly called "Avalon", provides the basis for creating rich applications in Longhorn.  This includes support for modern imaging and printing pipeline, UI automation, data driven UIs among other things.  Check out the information from the link as they have samples and plenty more information.
 
Windows Communication Foundation, formerly called "Indigo", is a set of .NET technologies for building and running connected systems.  This provides more robust, secure and transactable Web Services and provides a much needed basis for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).  Check out the link for MSDN TV events and samples.
