Garage Member Albany Can Code Announces Investment from Facebook

This morning we hosted Albany Can Code’s press conference announcing a $50,000 investment from Facebookto help expand it’s programs in the Capital Region and New York’s Hudson Valley. Albany Can Code has been a longtime member here at the Garage, and we are beyond proud of this incredible next step in their journey of providing web development training for women, minorities, veterans and others looking to enter the tech sector and advance their careers through this course.

They went on to celebrate their graduation in the evening as Lisa Harris, Director, State and Economic Development Policy from Facebook inspired our next generation of coders as the keynote speaker.

Congratulations to Annmarie Lanesey and her team on this incredible announcement. We are thrilled to have you in our community and can’t wait to see what the future holds for Albany Can Code.
