Code: how can it help us?

We’d love for you to join in the debate here at All Over Albany. However, there are a few ground rules to follow. Don’t worry, they’re easy to do. The first is to be considerate. The second rule is to treat others with the same respect you would like to be treated with. Isn’t it cool? Great, go ahead and write. Since comments are moderated, it will take a while for yours to appear. Thank you for your patience.
All Over Albany is a website for people who are interested in New York’s Capital Region. To put it another way, it’s for you. It’s like having a savvy friend who can help you figure out what’s going on. Oh, and our pals refer to us as AOA.

Ramon Vazquez spent a decade in the United States Air Force, but when he returned home, he felt his work opportunities were restricted. He returned to school and earned a bachelor’s degree in English, but could only find jobs in retail.
“It was a frightening moment,” Ramon Vazquez, an alumnus of Albany Can Code, said. “You wake up in the morning and you’re used to doing the same thing, and you’ve decided to change your life.”
SEFCU’s president and CEO, Michael Castellana, said, “We have a huge responsibility to pay back for our veterans.” “They have left us with a debt that we will never be able to repay. Every day should be Veterans Day, in my opinion.”
“With the help of the SEFCU grant, we’ve had about six people go through the program in the last year,” Lanesey said. “We were astounded to discover how many obstacles stand in our path. Tuition is an obstacle, but so are many of the other services, such as transportation, childcare, and so on… so it helps us to reach out and support them in those ways as well as reach out to more veterans in the community.”

We’ve had to make the tough decision to postpone Albany Code Camp until the fall, as businesses continue to limit travel and conference attendance.

We apologize for the short notice, but we have agreed to close the call for speakers a week early.
Saturday, March 7th, at 5 p.m., will be the last day for session proposals.
Closing a call is a bit rare.
If you’re thinking about sending a session for Albany Code Camp, keep in mind that the call for speakers ends on March 15th.
We’ve already received a lot of awesome sessions, but there’s still time to send yours.

The girls were attending an all-girls summer coding camp in the capital city, where they worked on community projects and learned how to code websites for social good and to help solve everyday problems.
— (TNS) — The majority of the 11 middle school girls chosen to attend the AT&T and Capital Area STEM Hub All Girls Summer Coding Camp had never written software code before.
Analise Magliaro, an eighth grader at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School who attended the camp, said, “I took the course because I hadn’t really gotten to experience real coding.” “I learned what HTML code (which is used to build websites) is and how to code. It was simply a fantastic experience.”
Magliaro and the other ten middle school students who attended were picked from a pool of 112 girls nominated by their teachers. According to school district officials, the girls needed a 90 average or higher, excellent attendance, and a “positive attitude.”
According to district leaders, AT&T was the primary sponsor, contributing $20,000 to the camp’s expenses. Via its Capital Area STEM Hub program, the Center for Economic Development of Albany was also involved. The classroom programming was provided by Albany Can Code, an educational non-profit that helps adults and children learn to code, as well as Capital Region BOCES.
