Built By Visionaries_

For every problem, there’s a solution.

Codeup was founded in November of 2013 when three visionaries – Michael Girdley, Chris Turner, and Jason Straughan – realized the shortage of developers for hire was a problem that everyone came to accept, but no one did anything about. Codeup hopes to make its corner of the world a little better by solving a big, meaningful problem for its community and the country—one person at a time.
