New coding school opening in Peachtree Corners

Peachtree Corners’ Prototype Prime will partner with Georgia Tech to offer a new coding school at Prototype Prime’s campus in Peachtree Corners. Prototype Prime is the city-funded startup incubator located in Technology Park Atlanta.

The classes will begin in Jan. 2019 in a specially designed classroom in Prototype Prime’s newly expanded second floor. The Georgia Tech Boot Camp classes will offer 12 or 24 week-long programs that provide students with fundamental skills and knowledge on front-end and back-end web development.

“Partnering with Georgia Tech to provide a coding school here on the Technology Park campus is a natural fit,” said Mayor Mike Mason. “Tech Park has a long association with Georgia Tech as many of the early pioneers who established their businesses studied at Georgia Tech. And, of course, Paul Duke, considered the founder of Peachtree Corners, was a Georgia Tech graduate.”

The coding school is designed to allow students to gain experience, build a portfolio of projects or add to their skill set while in college. Information: www.bootcamp.pe.gatech.edu/coding/.
