[Event] ITCamp 2014 - Early Bird, don't miss this great offer (May 22-23 2014)

If you work in IT industry, then you should booked a ticket for ITCamp that will be held in May 22-23, in Cluj-Napoca. This is the 4th year when this great event is organized and each year the number of participants is greater, the number of session and tracks is higher and higher. Also the quality and level of sessions increased drastically every year.
As usually, ITCamp will bring in Cluj-Napoca great speakers from all over the world. If I look on the list of speakers, I hardly wait to take part of session held by Tim Huckaby, Peter Leeson, Alex Ionescu, David Gard, Tobiasz Koprowski and other valuable speakers.
This year, agenda look very interesting. We will have 4 tracks in parallel. Yes, you heard well, 4 tracks in parallel. It will be pretty hard to decide on what track you should attend. The good news is that all the session will be recorded and you will be able to watch them offline.
Personally, when I look on the agenda I already have problems because I don’t know on what session I should go. There are a lot of interesting sessions that I would like to join but are in the same time.
If you want to learn how you can manage redundancy on Microsoft Azure (for public endpoints and databases) I invite you to join my session, which will take place in the second day of ITCamp, from 09:00 AM. Even if Microsoft Azure has great out of the box support for this, we need to know how to manage and get the best of it.
In conclusion, be prepared for the best ITCamp ever and don’t forget that Early Bird is open until April 18th. Book your ticket now!

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.

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.

[Post-Event] Codecamp Conference Cluj-Napoca - Nov 19, 2016

Last day I was invited to another Codecamp Conference, that took place in Cluj-Napoca. Like other Codecamp Conferences, the event was very big, with more than 1.000 participants and 70 sessions. There were 10 tracks in parallel, so it was pretty hard to decide at  what session you want to join.
It was great to join this conference and I hope that you discovered something new during the conference.
At this event I talked about Azure IoT Hub and how we can use it to connect devices from the field. I had a lot of demos using Raspberry PI 3 and Simplelink SensorTag. Most of the samples were written in C++ and Node.JS and people were impressed that even if we are using Microsoft technologies, we are not limited to C# and .NET. World and Microsoft are changing so fast. Just looking and Azure IoT Hub and new features that were launched and I'm pressed (Jobs, Methods, Device Twin).
On backend my demos covered Stream Analytics, Event Hub, Azure Object Storage and DocumentDB.

What abo…
