Hackathon - Cluj-Napoca, 11.12.2011

In acest weekend in Cluj-Napoca a avut loc Hackathon organizat de catre Microsoft Student Partents.
Am participat la acest eveniment ca si membru din juriu. La finalul celor 24 de ore, cele 14 echipe care s-au inscris in concus au  avut niste aplicatii foarte reusite. Ne-a fost destul de greu sa alegem echipele castitoare.
Locul intai a fost ocupat de echipa DOTDOTDOT cu aplicatia TweetThePlace.
Aplicaţie care permite să laşi mesaje (şi poze) într-un anumit Place. Nu poţi vedea/posta un mesaj dacă nu te aflii în apropierea Place-ului respectiv. Suportă şi live stream folosind push notification astfel încăt dacă te aflii lâncă un Place şi se postează un mesaj la acel Place, eşti notificat. 
Vreau sa felicit toate echipele pentru ca au reusit in 24 de ore sa scrie niste aplicatii formidabile. Sper sa vad o parte din aceste aplicatii pe Marketplace.
Poze de la acest eveniment: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.288186067889752.63330.148534875188206&type=3

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:

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.
