This is a recording from an MSDN Live Meeting broadcast from the Microsoft Belgium office on February 28, 2012.

We're going to build a small application to show off some of the more advanced Windows Phone 7.5 features: the new app lifecycle, Isolated Storage (and working with a local database). We'll start out with an almost-empty app and start adding code to get the app from dormant and/or tombstoned state back up and running, continue right into saving the state to the IsoStore and more. The application will be built using the MVVM design pattern.

As a Silverlight enthusiast, he's a regular speaker on various national and international events, like Microsoft DevDays in The Netherlands, Microsoft Techdays in Portugal or on BESUG events (the Belgian Silverlight User Group). Next to that, he also writes articles for various Silverlight-related sites, and he wrote a best-selling Silverlight book, Packt Publishing's Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook ( ). His blog, which contains various tidbits on Silverlight, .NET, and the occasional rambling, can be found at
