We love what we do — helping people build their skills for a career in technology. And we’re glad to do it in a city with a rapidly-growing technology market that, according to The Tennessean, is the 12th-best for STEM workers:

“Nashville was ranked as the No. 12 Best Metro Area for STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Professionals by personal finance social network WalletHub this week, with its STEM employment growth listed as No. 6. In December, Fortune published data from tech job search site Dice.com that pointed to Nashville as the No. 2 fastest-growing tech job market, with a 24 percent increase in demand for workers expected in 2015.”

Also last week, our Tech Apprentice Program was cited by The Washington Post as an innovative financing model to imitate:

“If the fundamental premise of President Obama’s new initiative to make community college free is to open up career and life opportunities for the nation’s young — especially those from underprivileged backgrounds — then the federal government should also be thinking of ways to cover the tuition costs of individuals attending coding boot camps.”
