[Post Event] Codecamp Cluj-Napoca, 2018

This weekend I participate at Codecamp Cluj and I was impressive of the event size. More than 1.000 people and 10 tracks in parallel. This free event it's now at another level from size and no of participants perspective. There were more then 50 speakers that delivered quality sessions about IT trends and trends. From AI to IoT and software processes to Java and .NET we had them all in Cluj-Napoca for one day.

At this event I had the oportunity to deliver to sessions about Azure Kubernetes Services and what quantum computer are preparing for the developers. You can find below slides and abstracts.

Title: Demystifying microservices inside Azure AKS
Abstract: The main purpose of this session is to put on the table things that we need to be aware of when we decide to run our .NET Core applications inside Azure Kubernetes Services. Microservices is powerful but comes with a new paradigm for how we need to design our applications and write our code. Join this session if you want to find more about it.

Title: Quantum programming in a nutshell
Abstract: I'm pretty sure that you already heard about quantum computers and how they will change the way how we do IT. In this session, we plan to take a look at the programming models that we need to use when we write applications for quantum processors. Sounds interesting? Then join this session for a journey in the world of quantum programming to find out how we should write code for this supercomputers.

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 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:

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.
using (var scope = new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Required)) { using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("...")) { conn.Open(); SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(); sqlCommand.Connection = conn; sqlCommand.CommandText = ... sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery(); ... } scope.Complete(); } Starting with EF6.0 we have a new way to work with transactions. The new approach is based on Database.BeginTransaction(), Database.Rollback(), Database.Commit(). Yes, no more TransactionScope.
In the followi…

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.
