[Post Event] ITCamp Conference 2017 - Cluj-Napoca

What a week! ITCamp Conference took place in Cluj-Napoca Speakers all around the globe joined forces with ITCamp Community team and delivered high quality sessions. As in the last years, topics that are covered by ITCamp Conference were from all technologies - JavaScript to Containers, Azure to Raspberry, OOP to Machine Learning.
The speaker list is pretty long and I invite you to check it out. ITCamp Conference had Google employee's, Principal Program Managers from Microsoft and of course a lot of architects and deep technical people from the field.
Being part of such an event it is a delight. Having live high quality sessions in Cluj-Napoca it is a unique opportunity, offered by ITCamp Community each year.
In figures, ITCamp Community looks very interesting - more than 40 speakers, that deliver 40+ sessions during the two days of the conference to more than 500 attendees.

What a great conference! What a week! Great sessions, great speakers, wonderful people - all of them in one place for 2 days.

This year I delivered a session about .NET and .NET Core from IoT perspective. I done a interesting performance profiling of .NET Core running on Raspberry PI 3 with two different OS (Windows 10 IoT Core and Ubuntu Mate) and integration with Azure IoT Hub. If you want to find out the results you can check my slides.

Title: The fight for surviving in the IoT world

Abstract: The world is changing. Every day new devices appears around us. How will .NET survive in a word that is changing, in a word that migrates from mainstream to small and cheap devices fast and without mercy. The session will attack how .NET can survive and what are the new features of .NET that help us (the developers) to do this transition.

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.
