[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:

[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.
