Bellevue-based coding school Coding Dojo recently released a list of the most in-demand coding languages by region.
The list — which identifies high demand programming languages for Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Jose, Washington D.C., Houston, Boston, and Atlanta — was designed to help experienced and new programmers alike match their skills to the right job market.
“At Coding Dojo, we’re always revising our curriculum to prepare our students for the rapidly changing technology job market,” said Coding Dojo CEO, Michael Choi. “This analysis shows that the demand for coding skills is local, and knowing a language that will help you get a job in San Jose may not get you hired in Washington D.C.”
“This data backs up much of what we’ve known anecdotally in the developer community for years, like the lukewarm job demand for developer favorite language Ruby on Rails and just how high of a demand there is for Java,” said Coding Dojo head of curriculum, Speros Misirlakis. “It’s a good reminder that the technology developers like and talk about are not necessarily the same ones that businesses use. Based on this research, we’re removing Ruby on Rails and Swift classes from some of our locations and adding Java, C#, and PHP to others to better prepare our students for careers in those job markets.”
