[Post Event] Keyboards & Mice Cluj-Napoca

Yesterday evening iQuest had organized an IT event in Cluj-Napoca - Keyboard & Mice. Almost 100 people participate to this event. There were 5 speakers that are working (or used to work) in iQuest.
The session were very interesting and presented IT industry from different perspective. In this kind of events you realise that IT is more than 'code'.
Below you can find the event schedule:

  • Welcome speech – Mihai Barabas, Head of PMO, iQuest Group
  • How to crunch 1M messages per second in 4 easy steps – Radu Vunvulea, Technical Lead, iQuest Group
  • You don’t have a [brilliant] future as a developer if … – Andrei Olar, Developer
  • Highly secured cloud-based reporting and analytics platform – Mihai Josan, Senior Software Engineer
  • Mobile Already Is the Future – Andrei Hegedus, Technical Lead, iQuest Group
At the end of this post you will be able to find the slides from my presentation. 
After the event we had a special contest called "Drunk Programing Contest". The short story is very simple: "You need to resolve problems from TopCoder and drink". Perfect event for a programmer (smile). This time we had something special, a water dispenser full with wine - hot or cold. Yes, we had a lot of fun.

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.
