Saptamana 10-16 octombrie - o saptamana plina

Saptamana care tocmai a trecut a fost o saptamana plina pentru mine. Doua evenimente importante erau trecute in calendar. Din aceasta cauza nu am avut timp sa scriu nimic pe blog.
Primul eveniment a avut loc in Sibiu, pe data de 13 octombrie, cand iQuest a deschis un nou sediu in Sibiu. Lansara a fost insotita de un eveniment organizat de catre iQuest impreuna cu Microsoft Romania, care s-a numit “Mobile in the Cloud”. Microsoft Romania a fost present cu doi prezentatori (George Pristavu si Petru Jucovschi) care ne-au introdus in lumea platformei Windows Azure si a Windows Phone 7. Invitatul special din partea iQuest a fost Bernd Kullick care este consultant pe Windows Azure la Microsoft Germania. Acesta ne-a prezentat arhitectura unei aplicatii pe cloud - Eye On Earth. In cadrul dezvoltarii acestei aplicatii a luat parte si iQuest. In cadrul ultimei prezentari am prezentat Sudoku7. O aplicatie pentru Windows Phone 7 care a fost integrata cu Windows Azure. A fost prima aplicatie pe care am scriso pe Windows Phone 7 si pot sa zic ca experienta a fost destul de frumoasa desi am avut de trecut cateva obstacole.
Ca de obicei Sibiul ne-a lasat o impresie frumoasa, in special noul sediu iQuest, care arata foarte bine. Din punctul meu de vedere evenimentul a iesit foarte bine. Lumea a fost interesata de eveniment dar si de iQuest. Fiecare participant plecand multumit acasa. Incepand din 13 octombrie, Sibiul apare si el pe harta iQuest.
Al doilea eveniment a fost in Cluj-Napoca. Radu Vunvulea impreuna cu Mihai Nadas au organizat un eveniment CODECAMP pentru dezvoltatorii .NET si nu numai din Cluj. Evenimentul a avut loc in 15 octombrie. Chiar daca a fost sambata, sala a fost plina pana la final (aproape 60 de persoane). iQuest s-a numarat printre sponsorii acestui eveniment, impreuna cu Microsoft si Yonder. Daca doriti sa urmariti prezentariile online, putem sa faceti acest lucru la adresa
Cele mai mari emotii le aveam cu numarul de participant. Deoarece evenimentul a avut loc sambata, ne era frica sa nu avem sala goala. Dar din fericire Clujul nu ne-a dezamagit. Pe viitor pregatim si alte evenimente CODECAMP in Cluj-Napoca.
O sa revin saptamana urmatoare cu un post despre OAuth, pentru persoanele care nu au fost la evenimentul de sambata.

Update: video de la Sibiu

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&#…

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:

Run native .NET application in Docker (.NET Framework 4.6.2)

The main scope of this post is to see how we can run a legacy application written in .NET Framework in Docker.

First of all, let’s define what is a legacy application in our context. By a legacy application we understand an application that runs .NET Framework 3.5 or higher in a production environment where we don’t have any more the people or documentation that would help us to understand what is happening behind the scene.
In this scenarios, you might want to migrate the current solution from a standard environment to Docker. There are many advantages for such a migration, like:

Continuous DeploymentTestingIsolationSecurity at container levelVersioning ControlEnvironment Standardization
Until now, we didn’t had the possibility to run a .NET application in Docker. With .NET Core, there was support for .NET Core in Docker, but migration from a full .NET framework to .NET Core can be costly and even impossible. Not only because of lack of features, but also because once you…
