Specialization Course: Java
Love that ultimate control? In this course you’ll learn the programming language that’s relied upon by corporations of all shapes and sizes.
This course provides you with all the information and training you need to start a career as a Java developer by providing practical knowledge and experience for real-world situations. You’ll work with the front-end, to the server by creating web pages, to working with databases, and everything in between. You’ll walk away from this course versatile enough to not only write code, but effectively debug too as a promising junior team member and full-stack developer.
This class meets 2 nights per week for 14 weeks at the AIM Brain Exchange at 1902 Howard Street in Omaha, NE.

Featured Java Graduate: Jen Jost
After spending 14 years working in higher education, Jen Jost was ready for a change. She needed much more control over her own schedule.
Jen loved the technical aspects of her previous career, so she began exploring several code school options in Omaha and Lincoln. Ultimately, she felt unable to devote three months of her life to a full-time code school, so she chose Interface Web School for her education. Jen said, “It was intense, but not all-consuming. I can’t take off three months from life to be completely immersed in code school.” She took the Java Specialization Course with Kent Smotherman and now enjoys a successful freelancing career. Read more about Jen’s story on our blog.
Open to individuals with 6 months of front-end web development experience and/or graduates of an Interface School Foundations course who want to build the skills to begin a career as a web application developer. An assessment is required to be accepted into this course.
Students receive a laptop as part of this course.
