[Post Event] DevTalks 2015, Cluj-Napoca

Today I had the opportunity to be one of the speakers of DevTalks conference. The conference was pretty interesting, with 4 different tracks in parallel (Web,  Mobile and IoT, Cloud and BI/BigData). From this perspective, attendees had a lot of options.
The thing that I liked at this conference was the subjects that were presented. It was not a conference only about a specific stack (only Java or Microsoft). Because of this, I decided to talk about cloud and to not take only Azure in consideration. I analysed all cloud providers that are on the market and I tried to expose what people should take into consideration where they are moving from on-premises to cloud.
Based on DevTalks website it seems that there were:
  • 416 attendees
  • 44 speakers
  • 40 presentations
  • 4 even stages (tracks)
There are a lot of "4" in this statistics. I hope that next year we will see "5" in their statistics.

Below you can find the slides and abstract of my presentation.
Title: What we should(n’t) know about cloud providers
Abstract: Nowadays, cloud is not only a trend, it is a solution that is recommended and used by everyone. This session is dedicated to all decision makers that are looking into cloud. We will take a look at the dark side of cloud and we will try to identify what are the things that we need to take into account before jumping in the world of cloud.

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…
