Billionaire Elon Musk – How I Became The Real ‘Iron Man’

As a South African I am disappointed that Elon Musk is not celebrated in South Africa. He is one the greatest entrepreneurs of our time, He’s revolutionised big industries, He’s respected world wide yet people in South Africa people dont know who He is. The fact that He’s South Africa, born in Pretoria which makes this even more shocking.

I encourage my fellow South Africans to learn Elon’s entrepreneurial journey and see what He’s been able to do and what He continues to do. For me Elon Musk is a mentor. whenever things aren’t going my way or whenever I need that motivational push I just channel Elon Musk.

There’s a great documentary done by Bloomberg

on Elon Musk which is a must watch for any entrepreneur and for all South Africans. Come South Africa we need to start celebrating our heroes and forget about the other negative bullsh**t.

For my fellow South Africans do you also agree that we should celebrate our heroes? Please kindly share your views below in the comments section.

Protractor Timeout Ubuntu (Linux)

Life’s Good right now, I just joined an amazing team and I’m working on a huge Angularjs project. This project is what I’ve been looking for some time now. I get to work with my favourite OS Ubuntu and get to work with the latest web application technology.

After cloning the project onto my Ubuntu dev machine, I ran into the following problem when running protractor tests:
Error: Timed out waiting for the WebDriver server at http://0.0.0.0:1000/

This timeout issue only seemed to occur on Ubuntu machines, on Mac OS this was not an issue. Anyway after weeks of investigation I found a solution. The solution is quite simple all you need to add to your protract config file is the following:

allScriptsTimeout: 110000, 
chromeOnly: true

That’s it, no more timeouts.

Have you come across any weird issues with protractor? Please kindly share your experience below in the comments section.
