Onboarding (1x): 15 or 16 Aug

As a ReDI School student, you will participate in a 4-month program with usually two weekly evening classes (two hours each) taught by volunteers. Our tech courses are taught by professionals in the digital industry. In addition, we offer career workshops to support your start in the labor market.

 

We offer our courses in Berlin and Munich. For the courses in Munich click here. If you are not based in either of these cities we recommend taking online courses.

 

In addition, you will get access to a large number of workshops, professional networks, job training, and conferences, which can help you land a job or find a paid internship.

 

In case you don't have a laptop, we will support you with one, that you give back at the end of the course.

Most of our courses in the Digital Career Program are in English. That means that you should be able to follow a conversation and formulate questions in English.

Since the courses are free and the teachers are volunteers we hope that you can show the best side of you in terms of commitment and motivation.​

Python is not only the name of a snake - but also one of the most popular programming languages in the world! It lets you learn quickly and is good for beginners in more complex programming.

We use Python to analyze datasets and draw conclusions from them, to visualize our results, and for machine learning to train a program with data.

Front-end web development is the craft of creating websites. Everything you see on a website is front-end. What is going on in the back is called back-end.


We use HTML & CSS to build the main structure of a website and style it. JavaScript adds more functionalities to a website such as buttons and animations. React is a powerful JavaScript framework that makes your website even more dynamic and powerful!

Software Development with Java is a very diverse field of technology. You can, for example, create mobile apps for Android, communicate with a database with Spring Boot, or create classic cross-platform applications.

We use the programming language Java to learn the basics about how programming works and object-orientated programming. 

Computer Networking describes how computers are connected to each other and the Internet. Basically, the Internet is nothing less than a global network of computers.

We use network cables, have a look at how packets are sent via a Local Area Network (LAN), and how to set up a router. How does a computer know where to find another computer?

The Internet of Things - or short IoT - is the art of connecting different devices via the internet and letting them communicate with each other, for example, a smart fridge.

We learn about scenarios and business cases how IoT technologies help us to solve a problem.

Salesforce.com is the fastest-growing platform for customer relationship management (CRM). It is cloud-based (no software) and has many different products and services such as sales management, marketing, and support.

We learn how to set up and configure an organization in Salesforce.com.

Microsoft Azure is a cloud-computing platform with services for software and web applications. As the demand for Azure services increases so does the need for people who know how to use it.

We learn the basics of Microsoft Azure and prepare for the AZ900 exam.
