SQL Server v.Next - Data, analytics and artificial intelligence live event - April 19th, 2017

The IT landscape is changing every day. Nowadays it is more usual than ever to talk about data collecting, processing and visualization. If a few years ago we use to talk in TB of data, now PB is a normal data unit.
I remember than 10 years ago having a database that was bigger than 1GB it was acceptable, but not very common for small or medium company size. If we are looking now around us, a database of 20GB is a commodity. Anyone will think the database is to big or you need special hardware for it.
Security became now the biggest concern, where you persist data, what data you persist, who access what data are the questions that you need to face up.
5 years ago if you would say that you want to run SQL Server on Linux... it would be a joke, but look where we are not. We have SQL Server on Linux, we have containers, Docker and we see how Microsoft embrace the open source word.
We are exited to find out more about new features that SQL v.Next is preparing to us. It's not only about Linux support, this is just a small part. Features like:

  • In-memory OLTP
  • Columnstore
  • Always Encrypted
  • Transparent Data Encryption
  • Row-Level Security
  • Dynamic Data Masking

are the big things that are coming.

If you want to find more about this you can join the live event that will take place on April 19th. If you are from Cluj-Napoca, please join our meet-up event to find out what future is reserving to us.

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.

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.
