About Codeup Dallas_

Our History_

Codeup was born in November of 2013 in San Antonio, Texas after Michael Girdley, Chris Turner, and Jason Straughan realized that there was a shortage of developers available for hire. They took matters into their own hands by creating Codeup, a 22-week accelerator bootcamp. Since then, we’ve helped numerous students transform into Full Stack Web Developers and Data Scientists.

The Codeup Community_

At Codeup, we have one goal: To solve meaningful problems that bring the tech community together through empowerment. As a Codeup student, you have the opportunity to learn in a supportive environment with staff, instructors, and employer partners that do their part to innovate and lead the future of tech. Together, we are making our corner of the world a better place — one techie at a time.
