Nashville Software School Data Analytics Cohort 4

Come see us demo on June 29!

They say “It takes a village to raise a child” and we would be remiss if we didn’t thank all of the people who helped transform all of us in DA4 from data newcomers to savvy analysts.

To our incredible teachers, Andrew Marsee, Kristen Lucas and Teresa Whitesell:

You made our journey possible through your honesty, good humor and understanding. Despite the challenges presented with running a bootcamp through a virtual environment you built a true sense of community and camaraderie. Thank You!!

To the analytics masterminds of the NSS, Mary van Valkenburg, Mahesh Rao and Michael Holloway:

Thank you for your time and expertise in creating our assignments and for the extra time you gave to us whether it was to meet in class or to help us with a problem outside of class.

To the career development team of Julie Heckler, Marla Lamont and Ashley Canino:

Thank you for your tireless efforts to drag us into the present with our professional profiles and resumes. More importantly, thank you so much for the opportunities to interact with local data professionals. These relationships with area businesses and organizations we’ve made will last a lifetime.

Thank you to Sekou Tyler for taking the time to share your incredible PowerBI and Tableau skills with us. We are not worthy but hope to be close someday.

Last but definitely not least, a hearty thank you to John Wark for your vision to bring all of us together with the hope that we will go out there and make Nashville a better place to live.

Thank you to the industry professionals who joined us for the roundtable event. Your candor and insights about working in the field of Data Analytics prepared us for ‘real-life’ in immeasurable ways.
