Get ready for Spring 2021 - New Year, New Skills!
Calling all aspiring technologists to check out our courses! If you have an interest in working with web technologies, and the focus and patience to practice coding skills, now is the time to find out more. We are currently accepting applications for our Spring 2021 classes. Read on to find out what we’re offering!
We are also bringing back our Python for Data Analytics class. Python is a very popular programming language, with applications in science and data analysis as well as web programming. This course focuses on the uses of the language in data science, which is a highly marketable skill. Because of the intuitiveness of the language and syntax, Python is also one of the more accessible languages, so this course is appropriate for students with varying degrees of familiarity with coding.
We’re also adding a new class for Spring 2021! Our Microsoft PowerPlatform & Microsoft Azure* course focuses on the fundamentals of both services, gearing students towards certifications in both platforms. Students will learn how to leverage Microsoft Power Apps, Microsoft Power Automate, and Microsoft Power BI to help solve business challenges and answer business questions. In the second half of the course, the course will focus on cloud concepts, and the knowledge to plan, price, and administer Azure cloud services.
Spring courses are scheduled to begin the week of February 1, 2021. All of our spring classes will be meeting digitally, using AlbanyCanCode’s digital platform. Classes will continue to meet at the regularly scheduled times, with students joining through video conferencing. Students will be provided login information and given the opportunity to participate in test sessions prior to the first day of class to familiarize themselves with the platform and Microsoft Teams. Please be assured we will continue to provide 1-on-1 and small group support for classes.
