Jan 12, 2017

This week Cohort 15 and Evening Cohort 3 graduated 43 full-stack developers, marking over 385 total graduates of NSS. We celebrated their graduation and introduced 32 of the graduates to the community at Demo Day on Tuesday, January 10th.

These graduates spent either six months full-time (for the day students) or 12 months part-time (for the evening students) training at NSS, learning server-side development with .NET/C# and front-end engineering with HTML/CSS/JavaScript/AngularJS. At Demo Day the grads were able to showcase their capstone projects built with these technologies. They were able talk with prospective employers about their career plans and why they chose to to become software developers.

Most of the graduates had an opportunity to interview with our friend Clark Buckner, Nashville’s master of the podcast, to discuss career changes, challenges of learning something new, and the capstone projects for NSS graduates.

We’d like to thank local employers, alumni, current and potential students, mentors and other members of Nashville’s Technology community for coming out and sharing this special day with us.
