[Post Event] ITDays, Cluj-Napoca, November 24-25, 2015

Today, I had the great opportunity to be invited as speaker at ITDays. This conference is at the 3rd edition and it looks like that every year ITDays is becoming bigger and bigger.
ITDays in figures:

  • 3+ international speakers 
  • 3+ local product launches 
  • 4+ hands on lab 
  • 5+ research projects 
  • 20+ technical presentations 
  • 300+ participants
My session was about event messaging system and how you can manage a system that needs to handle thousands of messages per second. Slides and abstract of the session can be found below.
Title: 
How to manage one million messages per second using Azure
Abstract: 
At the beginning of a project it is simple to promise to clients different things, but when you need to prove them you might have discover that is impossible. Living in the IoT era we need to be able to process large amounts of content per second. This is why in this session we will see how we can construct a solution around Azure that can handle very easy 1M messages per second. We will start the session with a real time demo and we will continue to describe how we can construct such a system using Azure Services in less than 8h. Each Azure component that was used for the demo will be describes in detail and will see what are the pros and cons of it.

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…
