[Post Event] ITCamp 2018, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

The 8th addition of ITCamp Conference took place this week in Cluj-Napoca. This is one of the most relevant IT conferences from Transilvania if you want to have high-quality content and discover how technology meets business.
There were more than 50 speakers from all around the worlds, that delivered there session during two days. In total there were around 64 sessions on 5 parallel tracks. Many times it was hard to decide what session to join. A lot of good quality content shared to more than 520 attendees.
Beside this, it was an excellent opportunity to meet old and new friends that joined the conferences as speakers or attendees. See you next year, guys!

This year I had the opportunity to have two sessions where I talked about best practices on the day zero of a cloud project and about quantum programming (Q#). You can find more about my sessions below.
At the end of the post, there are some slides from the event.

Quantum programming in a nutshell
I'm pretty sure that you already heard about quantum computers and how they will change the way how we do IT. In this session, we plan to take a look at the programming models that we need to use when we write applications for quantum processors. Sounds interesting? Then join this session for a journey in the world of quantum programming to find out how we should write code for this supercomputers

Day ZERO of a cloud project
In this session, we will take a look at what we need to keep on our radar when we start a new project inside the Cloud. When not only us but also clients are new to the Cloud ecosystem, we need to be aware of small things that can make a difference or secure the success of the project. Things like security, environment isolation and access controls are just a tiny part of the things that we need be aware. There will be examples from real life projects and hands-on implementations inside Microsoft Azure. After joining this session, you will have an initial view on what things we shall be aware when we start a new project inside the Cloud.

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:

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.
