Visual Studio 2012 - Strange behavior durring the commit

Based on TFS and local machine configuration, when we make a check-in we can set a task associate with the changeset to Resolve status. There are times when you cannot change a task status to Resolve, for example different policy on TFS machine. If you are using Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2010, everything will be away – an error message will be displayed that notified you that the commit ended without success.
When working with Visual Studio 2012 you will discover that even if an error is displayed during the check-in, the changeset will be pushed to the source control without having a task associate to it. You will receive the TF237124 error, but only after the commit is pushed to source control. This will happen even if on the TFS you enforce a rule that allow to commit only if a task is specified.
I hate this behavior, because a commit is made to source control even if an error appears.
To be able to assign a task to the changeset, you will need to open the task in TFS or in the browser, navigate to ALL LINKS tabs and link the changeset to the task (you will need to know the changeset number).
If you want to change the default behavior and not to mark the task as resolve in the TFS, you will need to set to the false value the following key:
// Visual Studio 2010
//Visual Studio 2012
The problem with a check-in that is made even if an errors appears I expect to be solved in the near future. Is not acceptable this behavior.

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:

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.
