Albany Can Code fall 2017 classes

AlbanyCanCode classAlbany Can Code -- the local non-profit focused on helping people transition into careers in software development -- has opened applications for its fall courses, which start in October.

What is Albany Can Code? Blurbage:

We are a not-for-profit organization founded in June 2016, dedicated to the vision of a talent-fueled pipeline for our region's software sector. To build this pipeline, we work with employers, educators, and community organizations to identify, train, and advocate employment of people with the skills to work in software and IT jobs.
The goal is to remove the economic and cultural barriers to working in technology. We want our region to have an inclusive, vibrant, and expert pipeline of technologists. Part of that mission involves changing mindset in our region about who can be a technologist, and how to evaluate candidates for technology jobs.

The classes being offered this fall are front-end and back-end web development. That is, one class about the code displaying stuff online (HTML, CSS, Javascript, and so on) and one class about the virtual machines that turn out stuff online (servers, databases, and so on). The front-end development course is at the SCCC facility in downtown Albany, the back-end classes are at SCCC in Schenectady. The classes are in the evenings.

Tuition for the classes is $1,500. Help in getting financial assistance is available through SCCC.

Here's an FAQ for potential students.
