Our Story

Codeup’s story begins as many startups do: with a problem that needed solving.

In late 2013, Codeup’s three co-founders – Michael Girdley, Jason Straughan, and Chris Turner – noticed many of their fellow programmers and entrepreneurs were having a tough time finding quality software developers to grow their businesses. After some brainstorming and researching, the trio decided to open San Antonio’s first coding career accelerator with the mission of changing people’s lives through immersive software development education.

The three co-founders rounded up a dedicated group of instructors and staff members and created a space in San Antonio where people can learn programming in a supportive, creative environment.

The Codeup team hopes to make their corner of the world a little better by solving a big, meaningful problem for the community and the country — one person at a time.
