The University of Illinois Research Park and American Family Insurance have partnered together to power ILLINOIS REBOOT, a FREE coding pre-academy that exposes participants to technical skill fundamentals and provides coaching and mentoring from local tech professionals.

It will provide participants with a foundation in data science literacy, through introductions to the following topics: UNIX, SQL, Python, GitHub, and Agile project management principles.  The curriculum was curated by University of Illinois Computer Science faculty based on Software Carpentry courses.

APPLICATION NOW OPEN
Application deadline: January 13, 2021

Upon successful completion of curriculum and program requirements, participants will be awarded a University of Illinois Research Park Tech Badge certificate.

We are recruiting applicants for the next cohort that will start in February 2021. The program specifically seeks to encourage a more diverse and inclusive tech community in Central Illinois, and benefit those who have been adversely affected by the economic factors of COVID-19.

While programming skills and experience are not prerequisites for this course, applicants should have familiarity with technology and data.
