Our Core Values_

Being Helpful

From the admissions process to the job placement, we help and assist our students and employers every step of the way.

Inclusive Growth

We foster an environment that encourages growth beyond our four walls and further empowers the tech industry as a whole.

Delivering Excellence

Our commitment to excellence ensures our graduates walk out of the program fully equipped and ready to take on the challenges of tomorrow.

Acting with Integrity

Our connection to the tech community puts us in a unique position of influence, and we don’t take this for granted. We act with fierce integrity in everything we do.

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.
