In the past few years, Nashville’s tech community has grown. Nashville has received hundreds of thousands dollars of funds to assist in building out tech hiring initiatives and drawing more talent to the city.
In 2012, the Nashville Software School was created to give a new start to the unemployed and people who found their current career paths lacking. By the end of 2015, the school will have had 225 students graduate including Metovian Brandon Lyons.
Brandon went to the Nashville Software School after being laid off from a job at the Tennessee Department of Child Services. Brandon says that attending the school’s 6 month program was the best decision he ever made. Now he works at Metova’s Franklin office where he enjoys the daily challenges and works building mobile applications.
