For Educators


Inviting every student into the tech economy.

Our nation is 600,000 technologists short. Our regional economy, with over 100 employers of software and IT professionals, is constrained by a shortage of qualified candidates.

We’re convinced that aptitude is distributed evenly, while opportunity is not. K-12 systems can change that equation where they have the needed tools and cultures.  We’re here to connect: curriculum developers with employer input; teachers with tools; students with theory and practice; everyone with training, resources and support to make sure every student has the opportunity to develop their computational thinking and skills.

What is AlbanyCanCode?

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.
