[Post Event] Winter ITCamp event in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, December 9, 2015

Last week we had in Cluj-Napoca last ITCamp event in Cluj-Napoca for this year - Winter Code Camp. For this events we decided to talk about the new version of ASP.NET and MVC.
Because it was an afternoon event, we decided to have only two sessions where the following subjects were touched:
  • What new in ASP.NET MVC, 5 Visual Studio 2015 and Web Tooling
  • Setting up a SPA using Aurelia with Typescript in Visual Studio  
More information about agenda and original announcement can be found here: http://vunvulearadu.blogspot.ro/2015/11/winter-itcamp-event-in-cluj-napoca.html

From the number of participants, we were impressed. There were more than 120 attendees. We had to open another room for overflow. First time in my life when had this situation and to use an overflow room. It was a big WOW from our side and we promise that we will organized another event in first 3 months of 2016. At the end of this post, I shared with you some pictures from events.  
Thank you for participating at this event and see you next year!  

Below you can find the slides from the two session.

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.

Entity Framework (EF) TransactionScope vs Database.BeginTransaction

In today blog post we will talk a little about a new feature that is available on EF6+ related to Transactions.
Until now, when we had to use transaction we used ‘TransactionScope’. It works great and I would say that is something that is now in our blood.

The new approach is based on Database.BeginTransaction(), Database.Rollback(), Database.Commit(). Yes, no more TransactionScope.
