[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!

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI 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.
