This blog post is one of four in the series Learning to Code in Atlanta. 

The coronavirus has thrown the Atlanta job market into chaos, as it has throughout the world. Besides the lives lost, and quality of lives affected by COVID-19, hundreds of companies in the Metro area have been forced to close, leaving thousands jobless. For many, those jobs may not come back.

One silver lining: tech has been relatively stable post COVID. In particular, those who’ve completed high-quality computer coding courses are landing good jobs.

Even taking into account the effects of the virus on the economy, the outlook for tech in Atlanta is promising. With a cost of living drastically smaller than Silicon Valley, and a good base of skilled tech workers, Atlanta is poised to become a new tech capital.    

Atlanta also has the reach, infrastructure and culture of a large city, with high quality of life and a uniquely diverse population. Some of those signing up for coding “bootcamps” - intense, accelerated programs that teach specific coding languages - are seeking jobs with better security. While no career track guarantees you a job, mid-career learners – and those right out of high school or college – are eager to gain expertise that promises employment.

Hybrid Bootcamps Best Option for many Atlantans

Hybrid” bootcamps – where students learn at their own pace during the week (with an instructor available) – and live, instructor-guided studies with peers on Saturdays, are especially popular. A wide range of bootcamp students have busy family lives and limited or no income while they’re learning. 

A relatively recent addition to coding courses in the Metro area is Nucamp, which offers high-quality online/live learning like others, but for considerably less. Courses start at $349.

Unique to Nucamp is its “social mission” to make coding bootcamp available to everyone. With expert instruction, very reasonable cost and courses available in smaller communities as well as large cities, Nucamp is staying true to its mission.

Coding is Viable Option for Many

Nucamp programming attracts all types of learners:

  • A single mom who balances studies, working two part-time jobs while raising kids.
  • A recent high school graduate, whose first position out of school was eliminated in the wake of the coronavirus, has seen his entire extended family step up to support him while taking a course that will change his life.
  • Another mom who never dreamed she’d have to start over late in her working years is now thriving in her new coding job. 

There are myriad more stories like these from graduates of Nucamp bootcamps. Is one of them yours?
