[Post Event] ITCamp 2016, Cluj-Napoca

The 6th edition of ITCamp conference took place in Cluj-Napoca at the end of this week. For 2 days, more than 600 people were connected to the latest software development and devops trends.
More than 40 speakers had offered high quality content to ITCamp attends. Having 5 tracks in parallel is awesome, but sometimes is so hard to decide to what session to attend.

There were a lot of interesting topics that were presented and discussed during this two days. From Security and Development Best Practices, to .NET Core, Cloud and IoT. I really felt that IoT era already started during the sessions where many speakers had with them different smart devices that can improve our life.
The second day of ITCamp brought for the first time in Cluj-Napoca and Romania Microsoft HoloLens. This glasses are like the one from Start Trek that not only creates a virtual reality like other devices on the market, but offers to the user an augmentative reality. I had the opportunity to test them and it was amazing.
You can find pictures from the event at the end of this post.

This year at ITCamp I was invited to speak about Service Fabric and Microservices. More details about my session and slides can be found below. Feel free to contact me if you have any question related to this topic.

Topic: Azure Microservices in Practice
Abstract: In this session we will take a look on Azure Service Fabric and how we can create a web application using ASP.NET Core and microservices. During the presentation we will create a web application that will be hosted in Azure Service Fabric and use the most important capabilities of Azure Service Fabric.

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.
