[Post-Event] April BucharestJS Meetup #21 | Building Node.JS Together (with Microsoft)

This week I had the opportunity to be invited by BucharestJS meetup to speak about Node.JS from Microsoft perspective.
It was a challenge for me - speaking about Microsoft in a front of Node.JS people is not an easy task. I was happy to survive after one afternoon with around 80 people with no mercy to Microsoft and Azure. I'm sure that a part of them will give a try to Visual Studio Code and/or Azure Services.

For me it was a pleasure to find people that were open to discover 'exotic' IDE and products. Thank you to all attendees that accepted for one hour to hear about Microsoft technologies.
More information related to session, slides, demos can be find below.

Title: Building Node.js Together
Abstract: JavaScript's simplicity, ubiquity, and event-driven paradigm, and its high performance runtimes like Microsoft's Chakra and Google's V8, have led it to spread beyond web pages and browsers to servers and clouds, IoT devices, mobile apps, and more via the Node.js platform. For years Microsoft has worked closely with industry and community partners to build and improve Node.js to meet developers' needs, from contributing Node's main system library years ago to driving better diagnostics today. In this session, learn a bit about the history of Node.js, why developers are so interested in it, and what's coming next from Microsoft and the open source project to address Node developers' needs.

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:

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:

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&#…

Fundamental Books of a Software Engineer (version 2018)

More then six years ago I wrote a blog post about fundamental books that any software engineer (developer) should read. Now it is an excellent time to update this list with new entries.

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.
