    S9 Bonus: Debbie Levitt, Delta CX

    Debbie Levitt is an American living in Italy, with her Italian husband, and their 5 dogs. Many years ago, she obtained a degree in Music, but now focuses on customer experience online - of which, she has been called the Mary Poppins of Customer Experience. Outside of this, she and her husband bought a used camper and quickly became camper people. Her favorite place to take their camper to is Laces, Italy - but she noted that of her 5 dogs, zero of them are allowed in the camper.

    In the 90's, Debbie was helping businesses get on the web, strategizing with them around how to deploy their website and build an online presence. Fast forward many years, she has shifted into doing work and leading projects, centered around customer experience online.

    S9 E12: Yoav Abrahami, Velo by Wix

    S9 E12: Yoav Abrahami, Velo by Wix

    Yoav Abrahami was born and raised in Israel, never living in another country. Currently he lives in Tel Aviv, and has spent 30 years in technology. He studied High Energy Physics in college, and today, he finds similarities in how you solve problems in building products and physic. Outside of tech, he is the father of 2 children, and enjoys hiking and mountain biking in the diverse climates and terrains that Israel has to offer.

    In 2006, Yoav helped his brothers get Wix started up and build it to what it is today. Fast forward to today, Wix has collected infrastructure and application partners, allowing them to offer these integrations to Wix users. What they figured out next was that people wanted it done for them, turn key, without having to learn how to spin up a server.

    S9 Bonus: Shauli Rozen, ARMO Security

    S9 Bonus: Shauli Rozen, ARMO Security

    Shauli Rozen grew up in Israel, and besides a 5 year stint stateside, he has spent his whole life there. He is married with 3 boys, and is 45 years old. Shauli loves the beach, and the ocean, spending time surfing, scuba diving and free diving. Free diving peaked my interest, and he described it as diving with fins without scuba gear, holding your breath. He has made it 26m deep, which requires him to hold his breath for 60 seconds.

    In the past, Shauli noticed that the world was not actually ready for Kubernetes. The adoption curve proved to them that businesses had different problems outside of security. After spending 2 years of discovery and intimately learning Kubernetes, they spent 2 weeks to change the game in security - using open source.

    S9 E11: Srikar Sam Yeruva, Pycube

    S9 E11: Srikar Sam Yeruva, Pycube

    Srikar Sam Yeruva comes from an immigrant family from India. He had a humble background, which shaped his path forward and how he approaches life with hunger. He comes from a family of engineers, and his current venture is his 3rd startup. He loves learning, believing whole heartedly in constant learning. In fact, he mentioned that education was nothing but exposure, which I found insightful. He believes in being a person that tries to understand things, and people, without judgement.

    Srikar started working with hospitals in many different capacities to understand how things worked. This gave them a lot of perspective on how to help them best - administrators, doctors, nurses, etc. Once they learned how to serve them best, they pivoted to building software solutions to help them lower cost.

    S9 Bonus: David Hartmann, Helio Additive

    David Hartmann is a German born New Zealander, where he still lives today. His first job was to spend 17 years at Bayer, getting deep in the materials world, which triggered his passion for 3d printing. Outside of tech, he is raising 2 kids in New Zealand, which he notes is a great place to do so. He also travels a lot, which he loves, and mentioned that traditional cooking for New Zealand is something that doesn't happen often, and his cooking with hot stones under the earth.

    In 2014, David took a sabbatical from his Corporate job. He started to dig into 3d printing, and ended up meeting the founder of Polymer. They started talking about why the industry hadn't accomplished much of the things they had hoped, and they realized that software was generally, the answer.

    S9 E10: Dennis Pilarinos, Unblocked

    Dennis Pilarinos was tinkerer at an early age. He always found himself wanting to understand how things were put together - and as such, he would take them apart and try to reassemble them. He grew up in Canada, and is currently based in Vancouver. He is professional driven by tech curiosity and attention to detail. Previously, he founded and sold BuddyBuild, which went from inception to acquisition within 3 years. Outside of tech, he has his private pilots license, which allows him to fly a lot and take his mind off startup life.

    Dennis is a self proclaimed impatient person, and a mediocre developer - which drives his building of solutions. In context of a company, there is a lot of information that exists in the context of a company, which is necessary to know when getting familiar with a codebase. When you can't find that info, you are essentially... well, blocked. So, Dennis decided to help people solve that problem.

Informative and Entertaining Listen

Enjoyable podcast that talks building businesses with a wide variety of entrepreneurs.

Technosophos ,

Behind the scenes is front and center

It's easy to talk code. And it's easy to tell our usual venture pitch-style stories. But what I love about Code Story is that Noah takes it much deeper. There's just so much to learn listening to the struggles and triumphs behind the elevator pitches and software release.

Great podcast!

I'm enjoying the fun but relevant conversations with practical insights.
