[Post Event] ITDays 2018

Last week I had the great opportunity to participate at ITDays conference. Whit more then 900 participates registered and 4 stages, ITDays become one of the most relevant conferences in Cluj-Napoca that takes place in the second part of the year.
There were a lot of topics and areas that were discussed, from automotive and blockchain to AR and SAP. These 2 days conference was at its 6th edition and is becoming bigger and bigger every year.

I delivered a session about Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) and tips and tricks that we need to be aware of when we start this journey. I talked about important things that you need to know about scalability, load balancing, and tools around AKS.
You can find below the slides from my session.

Topic: 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.

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.

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.
