In today's edition of <ALL THINGS> Software: 

AnnieCannons, the only nonprofit included in Y Combinator's just-debuted cohort of startups is training human trafficking victims to code. The Oakland, CA nonprofit takes referrals from safe houses and social service organizations and provides free, six-month in-person software development training. The group also runs an in-house consultancy, so program grads can work there when finished with the training. After 2 to 3 years of consulting, graduates can be ready to take full-time work at tech companies. Y Combinator's accelerator model invests $120K twice a year in a large number of startups, who also receive hands-on support, and the opportunity to pitch investors. Y Combinator has funded 1,900 startups since 2005, has a community of 4,000 founders, and their companies are worth over $100 billion. EdSurge
