3 nonprofits, 3 student web developer teams, 1 grand prize – Launch Day

Interface: The Web School is gearing up to present the addition of some major rising stars to the Omaha tech community.  The ratio is 10 to 1 tech jobs to qualified individuals.  Interface aims to bridge that gap.

Interface Launch Day will be held at Lucky Bucket Brewing Company  at 11941 Centennial Rd., Ste. 1 in LaVista on June 12th at 6:00pm.  Join us for food, beverages and plenty of inspiration.

What is Launch Day?

Interface Launch Day is the day our web developer students have been preparing for for months. After working tirelessly with a designated nonprofit, they have come up with some remarkable web applications to solve pressing technology and design needs for their organization. Three teams will present these web applications to a panel of esteemed judges for the grand prize, which is reimbursement of a portion of their tuition for our Advanced Web Courses.

Interface Launch Day will also include a public voting component so friends, family, community supporters and representatives of the nonprofit community can vote for their favorite application.

Who are the nonprofits? 

Some of our students worked with Startup Genome – a website that gives community leaders or people just trying to network a comprehensive mapping of the local startup community in their area.

Others worked with the American Heart Association’s Sweethearts – a development program for select high school girls, which provides training in leadership, advocacy, community service and heart-healthy living.

The remaining group of students worked with Delivering Infinite Book Shelves (DIBS) – a program, which supports teachers in the Omaha area to ensure that every child is reading a book on their reading level, by themselves, every night.

Who are the students?

Because of our modular class format in full-stack development, students can be full time employees, college students or stay-at-home parents.  In fact, our current class runs the gamut.  We have a former professional poker player, a construction office manager, two stay-at-home mothers, a former welding student, college students and the founder of a nonprofit – most with very little prior web development experience.

Don’t miss it as Interface Web School adds some serious star power – our graduates – to the local tech community on Launch Day.

Preview web applications during 1MC on June 11th at Mammel Hall. We hope to see you at the final event! RSVP here.
