Diferenta intre doua date de tip DateTime

Sunt momente cand avem nevoie sa calculam diferenta a doua date. Pentru a putea calcula aceasta diferenta este nevoie doar sa folosim operatorul "-" intre cele doua date. Obiectul pe care il obtinem este de tip TimeSpan. Pana aici totul este in regula.
Dar ce reprezinta aceasta valorea? Poate sa fie negativa, positiva? Cum obtinem delta intre cele doua?
Obiectul de tip TimeSpan pe care il obtinem reprezinta diferenta intre cele doua date. Aceasta valoare poate sa fie negativa sau pozitiva. Daca apelam propietatiile din TimeSpan care ne returneaza minutele,secundele,... sau numarul total de minute, secunde,... acestea o sa ne returneaza valori negative sau pozitive, depinde de ce valori le comparam.
Daca dorim sa obtinem valoarea pozitiva a acestei diferente, putem sa folosim metoda "Duration()". Aceasta metoda returneaza un TimeSpan cu o valoarea pozitiva, care reprezinta timpul trecut intre cele doua date comparate.
Iata si un exemplu:
    class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
DateTime dateTime1 = DateTime.Now;
DateTime dateTime2 = dateTime1.AddHours(1);

TimeSpan deltadt1dt2 = dateTime1 - dateTime2;
TimeSpan deltadt2dt1 = dateTime2 - dateTime1;

Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime1: {0}", dateTime1));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime2: {0}", dateTime2));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime1-datetime2: {0}", deltadt1dt2));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime2-datetime1: {0}", deltadt2dt1));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Duration of datetime1 - datetime2: {0}",deltadt1dt2.Duration()));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Duration of datetime2 - datetime1: {0}", deltadt2dt1.Duration()));

Iar cea ce se afiseaza este:
datetime1: 10/19/2010 11:44:17 PM
datetime2: 10/20/2010 12:44:17 AM
datetime1-datetime2: -01:00:00
datetime2-datetime1: 01:00:00
Duration of datetime1 - datetime2: 01:00:00
Duration of datetime2 - datetime1: 01:00:00
Metoda "Duration()" poate sa fie folosita cu succes in loc sa facem Abs din valorea returnata de o propietate a TimeSpanului obtinut, sau sa facem Abs la Ticks, iar apoi sa generam un nou TimeSpan sau DateTime.

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:

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.
