The story of ITCamp
We started thinking about ITCamp in late 2008, together with the Microsoft MVPs and community friends in Romania at that time. We realized the one thing missing back then in Romania (and maybe in the region) was a very good conference on Microsoft technologies where we would have liked to go in order to learn new things and to get to know renowned speakers from around the world.
At that time, we used to travel quite a bit and spend a lot of money to get to conferences such as Microsoft's TechEd along with other MVPs and colleagues in the local IT community. We only found what we were looking for in remote places such as Barcelona, Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid, or the US -anywhere but here in Romania.
In 2011 we finally got together and organized the first edition of ITCamp. Back then, it was only designed to validate our assumptions about the local market, and it turned out to be a huge successas we passed the test of the audience: people came in larger numbers than we expected (ITCamp 2011 had over 200 attendees) and went home satisfied, and we knew that we will have them back for a second edition.
ITCamp has evolved since then - last year we had 440 participants, 40+ sessions on 4 technical tracks, with great speakers from all over the world as well as from the local IT community. This year's edition will change a few things.

This is the perfect moment to book your seat. There is a special price for early bird

See you at ITCamp

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.

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.
