Visual Studio 2010 extensions

Zilele acestea am fost constrans de un upgrade la OS care mi-a omorat masina sa instalez de la 0 toate aplicatiile. Mai jos o sa gasiti lista de extensii pentru Visual Studio 2010 pe care le folosesc:
  • Code alligment - il folosesc cand am nevoie sa aliniez codul dupa un anumit caracter( de exemplu cand trebuie sa aliniez cateva linii de cod dupa '=').
  • Indent Guides - traseaza linii verticale pentru fiecare nivel de intentare in parte.
  • PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2010 -  mai multe comenzi pe partea de management la proiecte si soluții.
  • Productivity Power Tool - cel mai mare plus care l-a adus pentru mine a fost fereastra de add/remove references.
  • Spell Checker - face check la spelling pentru string-uri, comnent-uri si plain text.
  • VSCommands 2010 - coloreaza diferit codul scris iar cand dam click dreapta pe un fiser/director/proiect/solutie ne ofera noi functionalitati precum: deschidere CMD cu path-ul setat in directorul curent, copy class, copy full path etc.


  1. By default Visual Studio nu exista pentru mine fara Resharper. Este ca sarea in paine. :-)

  2. De ar intelege asta si cei ce platesc pentru licente in firme, ce bine ar fi.. :)

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 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:

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&#…

Fundamental Books of a Software Engineer (version 2018)

More then six years ago I wrote a blog post about fundamental books that any software engineer (developer) should read. Now it is an excellent time to update this list with new entries.

There are 5 different categories of books, that represent the recommended path. For example, you start with Coding books, after that, you read books about Programming, Design and so on.
There are some books about C++ that I recommend not because you shall know C++, only because the concepts that you can learn from it.
