Saptamana 10-16 octombrie - o saptamana plina


Saptamana care tocmai a trecut a fost o saptamana plina pentru mine. Doua evenimente importante erau trecute in calendar. Din aceasta cauza nu am avut timp sa scriu nimic pe blog.
Primul eveniment a avut loc in Sibiu, pe data de 13 octombrie, cand iQuest a deschis un nou sediu in Sibiu. Lansara a fost insotita de un eveniment organizat de catre iQuest impreuna cu Microsoft Romania, care s-a numit “Mobile in the Cloud”. Microsoft Romania a fost present cu doi prezentatori (George Pristavu si Petru Jucovschi) care ne-au introdus in lumea platformei Windows Azure si a Windows Phone 7. Invitatul special din partea iQuest a fost Bernd Kullick care este consultant pe Windows Azure la Microsoft Germania. Acesta ne-a prezentat arhitectura unei aplicatii pe cloud - Eye On Earth. In cadrul dezvoltarii acestei aplicatii a luat parte si iQuest. In cadrul ultimei prezentari am prezentat Sudoku7. O aplicatie pentru Windows Phone 7 care a fost integrata cu Windows Azure. A fost prima aplicatie pe care am scriso pe Windows Phone 7 si pot sa zic ca experienta a fost destul de frumoasa desi am avut de trecut cateva obstacole.
Ca de obicei Sibiul ne-a lasat o impresie frumoasa, in special noul sediu iQuest, care arata foarte bine. Din punctul meu de vedere evenimentul a iesit foarte bine. Lumea a fost interesata de eveniment dar si de iQuest. Fiecare participant plecand multumit acasa. Incepand din 13 octombrie, Sibiul apare si el pe harta iQuest.
Al doilea eveniment a fost in Cluj-Napoca. Radu Vunvulea impreuna cu Mihai Nadas au organizat un eveniment CODECAMP pentru dezvoltatorii .NET si nu numai din Cluj. Evenimentul a avut loc in 15 octombrie. Chiar daca a fost sambata, sala a fost plina pana la final (aproape 60 de persoane). iQuest s-a numarat printre sponsorii acestui eveniment, impreuna cu Microsoft si Yonder. Daca doriti sa urmariti prezentariile online, putem sa faceti acest lucru la adresa www.justin.tv/codecampcluj.
Cele mai mari emotii le aveam cu numarul de participant. Deoarece evenimentul a avut loc sambata, ne era frica sa nu avem sala goala. Dar din fericire Clujul nu ne-a dezamagit. Pe viitor pregatim si alte evenimente CODECAMP in Cluj-Napoca.
O sa revin saptamana urmatoare cu un post despre OAuth, pentru persoanele care nu au fost la evenimentul de sambata.

How to check in AngularJS if a service was register or not

There are cases when you need to check in a service or a controller was register in AngularJS.
For example a valid use case is when you have the same implementation running on multiple application. In this case, you may want to intercept the HTTP provider and add a custom step there. This step don’t needs to run on all the application, only in the one where the service exist and register.
A solution for this case would be to have a flag in the configuration that specify this. In the core you would have an IF that would check the value of this flag.
Another solution is to check if a specific service was register in AngularJS or not. If the service was register that you would execute your own logic.
To check if a service was register or not in AngularJS container you need to call the ‘has’ method of ‘inhector’. It will return TRUE if the service was register.
if ($injector.has('httpInterceptorService')) { $httpProvider.interceptors.push('httpInterceptorService&#…

ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:
threw exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer' registered in the application config file for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded. Make sure that the assembly-qualified name is used and that the assembly is available to the running application. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 for more information. at System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DependencyResolution.ProviderServicesFactory.GetInstance(String providerTypeName, String providerInvariantName) This error happened only on the Continuous Integration machine. On the devs machines, everything has fine. The classic problem – on my machine it’s working. The CI has the following configuration:

Entity Framework (EF) TransactionScope vs Database.BeginTransaction

In today blog post we will talk a little about a new feature that is available on EF6+ related to Transactions.
Until now, when we had to use transaction we used ‘TransactionScope’. It works great and I would say that is something that is now in our blood.
using (var scope = new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Required)) { using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("...")) { conn.Open(); SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(); sqlCommand.Connection = conn; sqlCommand.CommandText = ... sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery(); ... } scope.Complete(); } Starting with EF6.0 we have a new way to work with transactions. The new approach is based on Database.BeginTransaction(), Database.Rollback(), Database.Commit(). Yes, no more TransactionScope.
In the followi…
