Inspire Idaho is a cooperative effort to provide free, future-ready skills development for every Idahoan who wants to participate in the rapidly growing app economy. The program was created by the University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene with partners who are committed to growing the regional tech-economy. As the land-grant university with extension offices in 42 counties, the U of I brings a broad range of educational opportunities to individuals across the state. Inspire Idaho supports new pathways to prosperity by providing access to the skills necessary to create a talent pipeline for local, regional and statewide industry partners.
Inspire Idaho offers free app development training featuring Apple Inc’s Everyone Can Code curriculum through the Swift platform. Any Idahoan can sign up to learn Swift, at no cost. A limited number of laptops are available to Inspire Idaho participants from our MacBook Lending Library.
