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 www.justin.tv/codecampcluj.
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.

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:

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.
