Opportunities abound for coders, web designers, and software developers but many people don’t realize they have the aptitude to pursue those kinds of careers. The growing need for training for coders and developers has led to growth for CanCode Communities. In this episode of Upstate Issues, Diane Donato talks with CanCode founder Annmarie Lanesey about how locally, statewide, and nationally, careers in web and app development are skyrocketing. Lanesey says she has always focused on training non-traditional talent for software careers. Now CanCode is working with local schools, in addition to training adults both young and old, about essential skills for the world of software development. Lanesey also talks about how quickly technology keeps changing and her work with local employers to make sure CanCode graduates will have the up-to-date knowledge they need for successful careers.
