Day 4 of TechEd 2012 - Amsterdam

Astazi a fost ultima zi a TechEd Europe 2012. Ca orice ultima zi a trecut extrem de repede dar a fost plina de continut de specialitate. Haideti sa vedem la ce sesiuni am fost astazi.
Am inceput ziua asa cum se cuvine, cu o sesiune de async calls pentru .NET 4.5 - "Async made simple in Windows 8, with C# and VB". Pot sa va spun ca am savurat aceasta prezentare, nu din cauza ca era vorba despre async, ci din cauza ca odata la 2-3 minute aflai ceva noi. Desi pana acuma am folosit async, am aflat destul de multe lucruri noi in cadrul acestei sesiuni pe care nu le stiam pana acuma.
Urmatoarea pe lista a fost "Achieving Enterprise Integration Patters with Windows Azure Service Bus". A fost o sesiune la fel de interesata ca si prima, iar la cum se anunta lucrurile Service Bus-ul din Azure devine din ce in ce mai serios. Nu mai este o jucarie.
A treia sesiune din ziua de azi a fost "Building High Performing Parallel Application Services on Windows Azure". Aveam alte asteptari de la aceasta sesiune, a fost destul de seaca, iar continutul nu a fost la cea ce ma asteptam din pacate.
TechEd-ul l-am terminat cu "Developing High Performing Parallel Application Services on Windows Azure". Se pot face lucruri foarte frumoase pe Windows Azure, mai ales cand vorbim de simulari si de analize date, sper sa am ocazie sa lucrez vreodata la un simulator care isi face partea computationala in cloud.
Primele doua prezentari din acesta zi au fost cireara de pe tort de la tot TechEd-ul pentru mine. Doar pentru aceste doua prezentari merita un drum in Amsterdam.
Hot tip of the day: In aceata zi este despre Service Bus si SharePoint. Se zvoneste prin Amsterdam ca urmatoarea versiune de SharePoint o sa foloseasca pe partea de workflow (in zona de session state) Service Bus. O sa revin cu un post pe aceasta tema cat de curand.
Si bonus, pentru cei care au Windows Phone 7+, daca tineti timp de 5 secunde butonul de lock cand acesta este blocat, camera video se porneste automat.
La revedere Amsterdam, la revedere TechEd Europe 2012. Ne vedem anul viitor.

  1. Nice :)
    Cat despre WP7, probabil depinde de producator - daca apas 5s butonul de lock face shutdown la mine - pentru camera video e suficient sa apas mai mult butonul dedicat din dreapta si porneste, chiar daca e in lock mode..

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 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 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.
