Inspiring Omaha’s youth to pursue opportunities in tech.
TEAM Software welcomed the 2018 Highlander Code Camp participants to learn more about the company, working in the tech field and the real-world skills needed to be a successful software developer. The 13 high school students met with TEAM employee owners Brian Cary, Dan Kerkman and Ryan Markus, who shared their experiences as software developers at TEAM.
The Highlander Code Camp is part of a joint partnership between Seventy Five North and AIM Institute called the Highland Tech Talent Initiative, whose goal is to inspire women, people of color and lower-income individuals to pursue opportunities in the tech field. The camp is a seven-week web development program for 13 high school students living in or attending school in north Omaha. The camp focuses on website creation, project management, job readiness and fun summer activities. Outside of in-class learning, camp participants meet with business leaders at startups and larger organizations, like TEAM.
“The Code Camp is a great opportunity to meet and connect with high schoolers interested in technology and just talk tech for bit,” said Kerkman. “We, as employee owners, get to share a little about our company, but also share about our careers and the different paths they can take in the technology field.”
