CanCode Communities Opens New Office in Albany’s Capital South Campus Center

ALBANY — CanCode Communities, a nonprofit organization training non-traditional talent for software career opportunities, has announced the opening of its new office in Albany’s Capital South Campus Center, a location fully aligned with its commitment to providing underrepresented individuals with pathways to technology education and careers. 

The educational and training facility at 20 Warren Street, owned by the Albany Housing Authority and operated by Capital Region BOCES, is the same location where CanCode offers computer coding courses in partnership with BOCES. Locating its office within that space is already enhancing and expanding the collaboration, with the housing authority offering to provide full scholarships to two of its residents who are interested in enrolling in CanCode classes. 

“We are delighted to open our new office at the Capital South Campus Center, and inspired to bring real-world tech training to help revitalize the neighborhood and community in Albany’s South End,” said Annmarie Lanesey, Founder and CEO of CanCode Communities. “Our co-location with Capital Region BOCES and new collaboration with the Albany Housing Authority opens up a world of opportunities to further build on a thriving partnership, which is giving underserved individuals a route to high-tech careers and ensuring our tech talent pipeline can meet the needs of employers.” 

The registration deadline is Friday, Feb. 25 for CanCode’s Spring 2022 courses, which will be provided virtually in small classroom settings, with real-time instruction and hands-on learning. Classes include Virtual Digital Literacy, the initial course to be offered through Herkimer CanCode; Front-End Web Development through Kingston CanCode; Python for Data Analytics through Saratoga CanCode; and Virtual Digital Literacy, Digital Literacy and Front-End Web Development, JavaScript Frameworks, and SQL/ETL through Albany CanCode.
