"When I entered the Ascend program, I knew practically nothing about cloud operations. By the end, I had helped deploy a Kafka server and numerous containerized microservices to a live Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service cluster. Ultimately, twelve weeks of Ascend positioned me in my dream career path as a DevOps engineer; and now, I'm being onboarded to a Fortune 500 client. What a ride."
"The Ascend Program gave me the opportunity to change my life and jumpstart my career as a software engineer. Instructors and program managers were flexible and encouraged me to engage and ask questions along the way. This immersive program helped me to feel confident in my transition to working full time for clients and delivering strong results."
"Nisum itself was built from a tapestry of people from a wide range of cultures, ethnicities, geographies, and backgrounds. I am pleased we can build specialized and diverse teams for our clients to provide high-impact solutions and opportunities to deserving rising talent."
