Atlanta goes by many names — ATL, The A, Hotlanta. With a growing tech industry, Atlanta has gained a new nickname: the Silicon Valley of the South.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), about 128,000 people work in computer and mathematical occupations in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell metro area. These professionals earn an average annual salary of $90,930, which is far above the average salary level across all occupations in Atlanta ($54,110).

Hundreds of startups and popular tech companies, such as Mailchimp, are headquartered in Atlanta. Several large tech businesses like Salesforce and Pandora also have Atlanta offices, and Microsoft is planning to expand its footprint in the city in 2021.

For those in Atlanta hoping to enter this growing industry, coding bootcamps can be a great way to quickly build desirable tech skills. Coding bootcamps in Atlanta can train students in web development, software engineering, cybersecurity, and user experience design — often in six months or less.

Bootcamps offer a relatively low-risk investment for individuals who want to get into tech, as many provide deferred payment options that let students repay their tuition after they graduate and find a job. The best coding bootcamps in Atlanta also deliver personalized career help and connect students with local employers.
