perhaps the Open Geospatial Consortium's Cookbook program is an 
interesting starting point for you:

http://www.opengeospatial.org/resources/?page=cookbooks

unfortunately both the WMS and WFS cookbooks are not available at the 
moment (the one being updated and the other in preparation), but both 
cover relevant free software implementations. Here are snapshots from 
both TOCs:
