[PostEvent] ITCamp 2014, Cluj-Napoca

Last week, Cluj-Napoca hosted the 4th edition of ITCamp. More than 400 people participate to this premium conference. During the two days of the event, more than 30 speakers talked about Microsoft Stack, Architecture, Cloud, Development methodology and many more. For this two days we could say that Cluj-Napoca was the center of IT from Romania.
This was the first year when we had 4 tracks in parallel and there were moments where it was pretty hard to decide at which session to attend. Session like “Management of Fear”, “30 Tools for Modern .NET Web Development in 60 minutes”, “Code Quality through Application Software Infrastructure” or “The Battle for Success” made waves between attendees.
Special thanks to the core organization team (Mihai Tataran and Tudy-Tudor Damian). You made a great job this year. There were a lot of sponsors that sustained this event. I’m proud that iQuest was one of the Platinum sponsors.
This year I had the opportunity to do a workshop dedicate to Agile, oriented to practice. The main purpose of it was to see how we can resolve different issues that can appear in a team or company using Agile methodology (if is possible). Also, in the first day of the event I had a session related to redundancy over Microsoft Azure - Database and Public Endpoints redundancy on Azure. Even if we are on a cloud platform, we need to think on different solutions that would offer us redundancy and failover mechanism. Cloud is not managed by God.
ITCamp 2014 Summary: 400+ people, 34 speakers, 2 days, 4 workshops, 4 tracks, 28 sponsors, 6 media partners and a lot of good sessions.
See you next year!

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:

Run native .NET application in Docker (.NET Framework 4.6.2)

Scope
The main scope of this post is to see how we can run a legacy application written in .NET Framework in Docker.

Context
First of all, let’s define what is a legacy application in our context. By a legacy application we understand an application that runs .NET Framework 3.5 or higher in a production environment where we don’t have any more the people or documentation that would help us to understand what is happening behind the scene.
In this scenarios, you might want to migrate the current solution from a standard environment to Docker. There are many advantages for such a migration, like:

Continuous DeploymentTestingIsolationSecurity at container levelVersioning ControlEnvironment Standardization
Until now, we didn’t had the possibility to run a .NET application in Docker. With .NET Core, there was support for .NET Core in Docker, but migration from a full .NET framework to .NET Core can be costly and even impossible. Not only because of lack of features, but also because once you…
