Less than 1 week until Microsoft Ignite 2017

First time when I took part at Microsoft TechEd in 2012 in Amsterdam. It was one of my first conferences with more than 5k attendees. It was a wow, from all perspective. From then I participate to each TechEd and Microsoft Ignite.
At Microsoft Ignite, attendees have the opportunity not only to learn and discover new stuff, but also to meet people all around the globe. It is that week in the year when you can meet face to face Program Managers from Microsoft together with people that you talk over Twitter from Japan, Australia, UK and USA in only one place.

This year things will be a little different. It will be the first time when I participate at Microsoft Ignite not as attendee, but also as speaker. It is a joy to be invited to speak at a conference with more than 23000 attendees. If this is not enough, I will have 3 sessions where I will share my knowledge and experience related to IoT, security and NoSQL. If you want to find more about this subjects feel free to join my sessions - https://myignite.microsoft.com/speaker/225150 

Even if you are joining my session or not, if you are coming to Microsoft Ignite, give me a ping and let us meet and have a talk.

Here’s more you can expect from Microsoft Ignite:

  • Go in depth with over 40 pre-day sessions to choose from, including Microsoft Azure, SharePoint, Dynamics 365, Windows, and much more
  • Learn about the future of tech in Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s keynote
  • Meet up with colleagues, view sessions, and discuss what you’re learning in the Hang Out
  • Gain insights from industry leaders with Women in Business and Tech programming


See you next week in Orlando!

Below you can find the list of sessions that I will have at Microsoft Ignite.
Enterprise security in practice
How does an enterprise look when you talk about security and cloud? Complicated, rigid, and difficulty accepting cloud-based architectures. After working closely with security teams from different companies, we've identified different approaches and requirements that are standard for enterprises. In this session, let's discuss and share lessons learned on how we can map security requirements to Microsoft Azure.

Power-up NoSQL with Azure Cosmos DB
NoSQL databases are here to stay. Extremely powerful and flexible NoSQL solutions improve our systems and have a direct impact on our business. Common discussions when you are using NoSQL solutions like DocumentDB or MongoDB are disaster recovery plans, backups, scalability, replication, clustering, security and many more. What if I told you a successful story on how we reduced all these topics to only one - Cosmos DB. Join this session if you want to find out how we deployed a worldwide NoSQL solution using Azure Cosmos DB.

The story of an IoT solution
Yes, this is a session about an IoT platform, within a challenging environment. Four years ago I was deeply involved in the creation of an enterprise grade IoT platform. Guess what, Microsoft came up each year with new services and products to the market that changed the shape of our platform. The session tells the architecture story of the platform and covers the most important points in time. See how we integrated Azure Event Hubs, IoT Hub, Microsoft Power BI, Azure Data Lake, and Azure Cosmos DB in an agile manner integrating ARM and other Microsoft technologies, products or services.

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:

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.

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…
