Atlanta is a great place to start your programming career. With startups like YikYak, Calendly, and Salesloft expanding, there are new jobs for those interested in getting into tech. One of the best ways to start programming is by attending a coding meetup to network and expand your knowledge. Here are a few Atalanta coding meetups that you should attend if you are ready to start your journey to become a developer.
Code for Atlanta is the Atlanta chapters of the Code for America Brigade, an organization devoted to civic hacking, open source, and open data (aka hacking for good!). This popular meetup has bi-monthly hack nights that include presentations as well as hands on projects that you can join.
PyAtl meets every month for presentations and discussion about Python, a powerful and easy-to-use programming language. Every meeting tries to include something for beginners, and also to tackle advanced topics for seasoned developers. They encourage beginners to attend regardless of their experience level!
Women Who Code Atlanta is a professional community for women in tech. They provide an avenue for women to pursue a career in technology, help them gain new skills and hone existing skills for professional advancement, and foster environments where networking and mentorship are valued. Weekly meetups include code jams, panels, talks and more!
