Brian Nelson Java Software Associate | 2014 Graduate

Alumni Biography

Brian Nelson

After my second semester of IWT I knew my first programming language and that summer I spent my free time teaching myself the ways of Android development. Since then I have developed, tested, and deployed that app, and some others, to the Play Store. A month or so before graduation I was called in for an interview with NISC(National Information Solutions Cooperative). They were very interested in the fact that I spent so much of my own time learning, and that I came out of it with something tangible that solved a personal problem of mine. If it hadn't been for Mr. Gudmestad passing along my resume and having something that stands out as much as a mobile application, I probably wouldn't be in the position I am today. Every day at NISC I learn something new, talk about an amazing new feature or technology, and work with one of the smartest and most innovative group of developers.
