About this Episode

Alex Williams, the founder, and editor-in-chief of The New Stack sat down with Erica Windisch, founder, and CTO of IOpipe, to learn about her background, upbringing and evolution as the co-founder and CTO of IOpipe.

Windisch grew up in Levittown, Pennsylvania in a middle-class family. She got interested in computers via playing video games. At one point she realized that she could use computers to program them.

Windisch was also inclined towards art through. To her amazement, when her grandfather showed her his PC she came across an application called Paint Brush, it was a revelation that she could use computers to create art.

“With computers, I could do both of these things - programming and creating art. It was ideal,” said Windisch.
