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:

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…

GET call of REST API that contains '/'-slash character in the value of a parameter

Let’s assume that we have the following scenario: I have a public HTTP endpoint and I need to post some content using GET command. One of the parameters contains special characters like “\” and “/”. If the endpoint is an ApiController than you may have problems if you encode the parameter using the http encoder.
using (var httpClient = new HttpClient()) { httpClient.BaseAddress = baseUrl; Task<HttpResponseMessage> response = httpClient.GetAsync(string.Format("api/foo/{0}", "qwert/qwerqwer"))); response.Wait(); response.Result.EnsureSuccessStatusCode(); } One possible solution would be to encode the query parameter using UrlTokenEncode method of HttpServerUtility class and GetBytes method ofUTF8. In this way you would get the array of bytes of the parameter and encode them as a url token.
The following code show to you how you could write the encode and decode methods.
