All I can say is that I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to attending Microsoft's MIX08 conference this year in Vegas.
One of the coolest things about MIX is how fast they get the sessions videos up online. Last year I remember downloading sessions I missed at the airport to watch on the flight home.
Some current highlights from the schedule that have me tingling are:
Microsoft Silverlight and Dynamic Languages - Learn how the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) works in Silverlight. Includes an introduction to Microsoft Silverlight for Python and Ruby programmers.
Effective User Interfaces in Windows Presentation Foundation and Microsoft Silverlight - Come see how customizable user interfaces were created by extending XAML in a way that integrates various content formats into a single consistent UI. Learn how to build an effective UI, extend XAML, build a Windows Presentation Foundation and Microsoft Silverlight application that can consume extended XAML, and much more.
Creating Rich, Dynamic User Interfaces with Silverlight 2 - See how to use the Microsoft Silverlight 2 control model to efficiently design and develop custom controls, style existing controls, create control templates, and package your controls for re-use to develop Rich Internet Applications. Also hear about the capabilities for localization and accessibility.
Working with Data and Web Services in Microsoft Silverlight 2 = Learn how easy it is to utilize POX, REST, RSS, ATOM, JSON, and SOAP in your Microsoft Silverlight mashup applications. Also learn how to easily access and display data with Silverlight using LINQ and databinding.
From Flash to Silverlight: A Rosetta Stone - Come learn how Cynergy Systems has been translating skills in Flash/Flex development to Microsoft Silverlight 2 with an eye for great design. Learn how to create custom animation techniques, apply popular Flash tricks to Silverlight, and more.
And there there's the MVC content and the WPF content.... OH.. And what about that IE8 thing?
