Backbonejs - the library (not the framework). What can you expect from it: short introduction to its components.  Where does its role stop: what extensions are there on the field. Some thoughts after using Backbonejs in production code
AngularJS - mai multa actiune, mai putin cod
Simona Avornicesei
AngularJS este o librarie javascript construita de Google si multi alti contribuitori din lume in jurul ideei de simplificare a muncii dezvoltatorului web. In aceasta sesiune vom construi o aplicatie in ASP.NET MVC si AngularJS si vom discuta despre cum poate fi introdusa in proiecte deja existente, cu impact minim.
Automate all the things! - How continuous delivery can save your sanity
Attila-Mihaly Balazs
The talk will present solutions to automate the boring and repetitive aspects of software development (build, test, quality inspection, deployment). We will look at concrete software solutions (Jenkins, Git, GitHub, Gerrit, SonarQube) and how they can be integrated together to save software development teams countless hours in repetitive tasks.
Real-time fluent communication using SignalR and Cloud
Radu Vunvulea
This session will explore how SignalR can make our life easier to create real-time application that works on any kind of device or browser.

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.
