Dubbed the Silicon Valley of the South, Atlanta has become a major hotspot for growing startups and established tech players dominating software markets. In a recent Burning Glass study, Atlanta was the city with the second-highest number of open tech jobs over the past 90 days, beating out Chicago, Austin, and San Francisco — which is no small feat. What’s more, new startup businesses in Georgia account for 13.99% of new jobs created per year and local companies raised $1.99 billion in the first half of 2021, according to PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association’s Venture Monitor report.

The ability to learn new technologies & languages quickly (71 percent), strong practical experience (61 percent), and eagerness to take on new responsibilities (52 percent).
What’s the difference between programming and coding?
Programming is the practice of writing instructions, or programs, for computers to follow or perform, resulting in a complete software product. Programmers look at the broader picture, with coding being one aspect of a larger function. In other words, coding simply refers to the act of writing code that a computer can interpret within a program.
What is web development?
Web development involves the practice of conceptualizing and writing code that results in a fully functioning website or application. Through the connection of the front end — or the user side — to the back end — also known as the server side — developers are responsible for creating a smooth user experience.
What’s the difference between web development and software development?
Web developers are responsible for using coding languages and frameworks to build a website, working either on the front or back end, or as a full stack developer (both the front and back ends). As a contrast, software developers focus on writing programs that will be interpreted by a desktop or mobile platform — otherwise known as software.
What is full-stack coding?
While some developers focus strictly on front end — client side — or back end — server side — coding, some aspire to be fluent in a full stack. These developers are responsible for building both the front and back ends of a website or application and have a solid understanding of how they work together to create a seamless user experience.

Will a coding boot camp get you a job?
While successful completion of a boot camp is an accomplishment in itself, it doesn’t come with the promise of a job. Working with a career support team can help position you as a qualified candidate for a variety of roles, but remember — the outcomes depend on the work you put in.
