[Post Event] Global Azure Bootcamp event, Cluj-Napoca, April 22th, 2017

For the 5th year in the row,  ITCamp community from Cluj-Napoca joined Global Azure Bootcamp event. In comparison with other communities events organized by in Cluj-Napoca, Global Azure Bootcamp is different because is purely hands-on lab.
There were 3 different workshops of 90 minutes each where attendees had the opportunity to play and test Azure Functions, Machine Learning and Azure Resources Managers (ARM). We respected this year also the tradition to organize the event at Endava (ISDC) building, where the location is perfect for hands-on labs. Special thank you for our local sponsor - Endava.

Agenda
09:00-09:30 - Sosirea participanților
09:30-11:00 - Azure Functions (Radu Vunvulea)
11:00-12:30 - Machine learning for mere mortals with Azure ML (Silviu Niculita)
12:30-14:00 - ARM Templates, how to create them, and use them in your CD pipeline (Florin Loghiade)

Workshops descriptions
Azure Functions (Radu Vunvulea) 

What are Azure Functions? AWS Lambda from Azure. This is the fastest way how we can present Azure Functions. Durring this workshop we will have a challenge cu create a system that can process and analyze data without VMs or other compution units. We will use only Azure Functions for it. Sounds interesting, than let's meet from 09:30 and find out how you can do this.

Machine learning for mere mortals with Azure ML (Silviu Niculita) 
Machine learning has been leveraged to radically change many industry verticals. The problem is the learning curve has always been very steep. Exotic languages, complex tools, little or no documentation.But innovative cloud based ML platforms are changing that and democratizing access. During this session, you will learn the basics of machine learning, and you will see a demo of how you can build a prediction model using real-world data, evaluate several different algorithms and modeling strategies, then deploy the finished model as a scalable RESTful API within minutes.

ARM Templates, how to create them, and use them in your CD pipeline (Florin Loghiade) 
Azure has an excelent API that permits the user to automate the creation of every complex environment, using one single JSON document. Those documents are called ARM Templates and they can be used to create, manage and even refresh any type of resource available in Azure. Using ARM templates and PowerShell combined with a CI/CD tool like VSTS, TeamCity, Jenkins, you can automate the build and deployment of the most complex application out there.

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:

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.

Coding

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&#…
