Bamboo vs Concourse: What are the differences?

Developers describe Bamboo as "Tie automated builds, tests, and releases together in a single workflow". Focus on coding and count on Bamboo as your CI and build server! Create multi-stage build plans, set up triggers to start builds upon commits, and assign agents to your critical builds and deployments. On the other hand, Concourse is detailed as "Pipeline-based CI system written in Go". Concourse's principles reduce the risk of switching to and from Concourse, by encouraging practices that decouple your project from your CI's little details, and keeping all configuration in declarative files that can be checked into version control.

Bamboo and Concourse can be categorized as "Continuous Integration" tools.

"Integrates with other Atlassian tools" is the primary reason why developers consider Bamboo over the competitors, whereas "Real pipelines" was stated as the key factor in picking Concourse.

Concourse is an open source tool with 3.99K GitHub stars and 482 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Concourse's open source repository on GitHub.

Poll Everywhere, EventManager-Online.com, and StumbleUpon are some of the popular companies that use Bamboo, whereas Concourse is used by DigitalOcean, Starbucks, and HelloFresh. Bamboo has a broader approval, being mentioned in 62 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to Concourse, which is listed in 18 company stacks and 17 developer stacks.

I would definetly recommend Concourse to you, as it is one of the most advanced modern methods of making CI/CD while Jenkins is an old monolithic dinosaur. Concourse itself is cloudnative and containerbased which helps you to build simple, high-performance and scalable CI/CD pipelines. In my opinion, the only lack of skills you have with Concourse is your own knowledge of how to build pipelines and automate things. Technincally there is no lack, i would even say you can extend it way more easily. But as a Con it is more easy to interact with Jenkins if you are only used to UIs. Concourse needs someone which is capable of using CLIs.
