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..

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…
