Hackathon - Cluj-Napoca, 11.12.2011

In acest weekend in Cluj-Napoca a avut loc Hackathon organizat de catre Microsoft Student Partents.
Am participat la acest eveniment ca si membru din juriu. La finalul celor 24 de ore, cele 14 echipe care s-au inscris in concus au  avut niste aplicatii foarte reusite. Ne-a fost destul de greu sa alegem echipele castitoare.
Locul intai a fost ocupat de echipa DOTDOTDOT cu aplicatia TweetThePlace.
Aplicaţie care permite să laşi mesaje (şi poze) într-un anumit Place. Nu poţi vedea/posta un mesaj dacă nu te aflii în apropierea Place-ului respectiv. Suportă şi live stream folosind push notification astfel încăt dacă te aflii lâncă un Place şi se postează un mesaj la acel Place, eşti notificat. 
Vreau sa felicit toate echipele pentru ca au reusit in 24 de ore sa scrie niste aplicatii formidabile. Sper sa vad o parte din aceste aplicatii pe Marketplace.

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:

TeamCity.NET 4.51EF 6.0.2VS2013

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…
