The sixth session of rapidly growing programming education startup Tech Talent South is about to kick off their Atlanta-based 8-week Code Immersion Program. This program is ranked as one of the top coding bootcamps in the South, and this code immersion program will be hosted at local coworking and innovation hub Strongbox West at their new, recently renovated location on the Westside.
Strongbox West is located in the heart of trendy West Midtown. At almost 50,000 square feet, it’s the biggest and baddest coworking space in the Southeast. With everything from endless meeting rooms to a video arcade, and free parking, their proximity to Georgia Tech, Flashpoint (a GA Tech accelerator program), and ATDC (one of the country’s oldest and most respected technology incubators) makes this one of the best places to be while learning code and networking with local entrepreneurs.
With locations in Atlanta, Raleigh, Asheville, Charlotte, and New Orleans, Tech Talent South boasts a boot camp for beginners that will give any eager, dedicated individual accelerated exposure to programming and web design. The Atlanta location also offers several front-end development courses as well as free Kids Coding on Mondays.
Students will jump headfirst into programming beginning January 20th. Highlights of their Code Immersion Programs include tackling and mastering:
• Ruby on Rails
• Domain Modeling for database-backed web applications
• HTTP and “RESTful” design
• Understanding and utilizing APIs
According to TTS alumna, Kaitlin Littlejohn, “It’s always a satisfying feeling to create something. That’s what coding is for me. It’s having no limit (relatively) and having the freedom to be as creative as possible.” Tech Talent is known in their various communities for helping students and alumni foster their entrepreneurial drive and get connected with other local talent.
TTS graduate and founder of Giusto, Randall Mardus, adds “Unlike my experience with online courses where it’s easy to fall behind quickly, TTS offers a tech support group. At first, the teachers support you. With time, the other students support you. By the end, you are supporting others. For me, this separated TTS from the others.”
TTS proudly offers female scholarships, recent graduate scholarships, and continuing education opportunities for local teachers at all levels. Apply for the program here, or join the Meet & Greet that Tech Talent South is holding on Tuesday January 13th at Octane Westside to chat with the team.
