Newsweek names AIM Code School one of the top code schools of 2020

Posted on in AIM Newsroom, Tech Education

AIM Code School has been named one of the top online coding schools of 2020 by Newsweek. One of seven organizations to be chosen for the list, AIM Code School is the only one in the Midwest. 

Our code school courses moved fully remote and online during the COVID-19 global pandemic, making it easy for students to continue their coursework on the foundations of web development and coding speciality courses.

“This designation reflects the success of our flexible AIM Code School offerings,” said Emily Matis, AIM Code School director. “Our accredited courses have changed the lives of our students and strengthened the Omaha tech talent pipeline.”

No matter where you are on the tech continuum, AIM Code School has a course for you, from free workshops on web development basics to advanced programming courses in Python, .Net and full stack Java.

In addition to learning crucial programming and development skills, our students build meaningful connections within the community — the kinds of connections that lead to new jobs, new opportunities and new perspectives. Like Java class graduate Eric Swanson, whose AIM Code School contacts opened the door to his first programming job at Flywheel, along with the opportunity to give back to the community by teaching at Highlander Code Camp.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for a programmer is $86,550. The average salary for an entry-level web developer in Omaha is $60,409 (indeed.com) and $76,604 for an entry-level full-stack developer (Glassdoor).
