Interview: Liselot Poppink

My younger brother Ryan is being wonderfully supportive of She’s Building A Robot. He introduced me to Liselot Poppink who heads up consulting at Elastic and has had an amazing life in technology.

Highlights from me:

  1. A school teacher at school encouraged her to look into computer programming. She also had a supporting father.
  2. Her first computer programming was on punch cards.
  3. She was the only woman on technology teams and often they didn’t take her ideas seriously until she proved herself.

Thanks Liselot. Greatly appreciated.
