[ARCHIVED] Albany Can Code in Saratoga - Public Information Session

The Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership, Saratoga County, NY’s economic development agency, and Albany Can Code, a nonprofit dedicated to growing the Capital Region’s tech talent pipeline, today announced a partnership to launch a first-of-its-kind computer programming education and training program in Saratoga County.

Recruitment is now underway for the Front-End Web Development course, to be held January 29 through April 18, 2019 at the SUNY Adirondack Wilton Center, 696 Route Nine in Wilton. The course teaches technical skills such as HTML/CSS and JavaScript, which form the foundation of the modern web. Students also learn the basics of user interface (UI) design and work in teams to build projects for community organizations to get real-world experience.

Presented by Albany Can Code, the course will run two evenings per week, three hours per session. Meanwhile, the group will work closely with the Saratoga Partnership, which will assist in recruiting students and connecting graduates with potential employers in need of computer programmers – filling a critical need among Saratoga County businesses while providing a pathway for students to pursue exciting career opportunities.

The Front-End Web Development course is particularly attractive to beginning programmers with aspirations to create mobile applications, as it establishes foundations in JavaScript that support eventual progression into Full-Stack Web Development. The course will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:45 to 8:45 p.m. The cost of the 12-week program is $1,500, and students may qualify for funding assistance.

To learn more about the program, candidates are invited to attend an informational night on Wednesday, November 28 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the SUNY Adirondack Wilton Center.
