Students from all different walks of life come to Nashville Software School (NSS) to gain the skills they need to start a career in tech! Their reasons for choosing NSS are plentiful, as are their options for how to gain new tech skills. So when someone chooses NSS, we do not take their decision lightly. Here is what our alumni had to say shortly after graduating about why they chose NSS.

A Good Foundation for Data Science and Machine Learning

I wanted a good foundation for my Data Science and Machine Learning career. I have been a self-learner for a long time but having knowledgeable instructors giving me orientation was much more valuable.”

Maeva Ralafiarindaza, Part-time Data Science Cohort 4


Local School with Great Reputation

This is a local school, with a great reputation with local employers. This gives direct access to those who hire in the area. The competition does not come close in that regard.”

Justin Crippen, Full-time Data Analytics 3


Supportive And Challenging

“I wanted an opportunity to gain hands-on experience using tools like SQL, Python and R to solve business problems. I’m grateful that NSS provided me with a supportive and challenging environment to do just that.”

Oluchi Randolph, Part-time Data Science Cohort 4


Community And Trust

“I chose to attend NSS because I knew it was a quality school. My sister and brother-in-law both attended and recommended it, and they offered a bootcamp for the career I wanted to transition into. The community and trust that you build with others while going through the boot camp is irreplaceable in my mind.”

Brandon Morgan, Full-time Data Analytics 3


Commitment to Nashville

“NSS's commitment to Nashville and growing the tech community here.”

James Gilbert, Part-time Data Science Cohort 5


Raving Reviews from Peers

“I have always been interested in data and wanted a formal education and the ability to get some hands-on training within a short period of time. I reached out to peers, personal contacts and in doing some research, I learned about Nashville Software School, which had nothing but raving reviews. NSS was a great decision.”

Suzanne Saggio, Full-time Data Analytics 5


The Transparency of NSS

“Compared to similar programs, NSS stood out to me with its transparency. I was able to easily locate all the information about the bootcamp I was looking for on the website without having to provide my personal data. I've also have several friends that graduated from NSS that had positive experiences.”

Iulia Goike, Part-time Data Analytics 6


High Quality Work From High Quality, Motivated People.

“My employer has hired NSS grads and I have seen their output. It's high quality work from high quality, motivated people. I was also drawn to NSS being a non-profit and therefore driven by a set of values that you don't see in other bootcamps.”

Megan Amaral, Part-time Data Analytics 4
