Codeup to open Dallas campus in 2020  San Antonio Express-News

Codeup is heading to Dallas.

The San Antonio-based company, which offers 20-week coding and software engineering boot camps, is opening a campus in Dallas sometime next year to meet the state’s growing demand for high-tech workers, Codeup announced in a blog post Friday.

Dallas was chosen for Codeup’s second campus because the company said it’s placed program graduates in jobs with employers there, including USAA and Cognizant Technology Solutions, for average salaries of over $86,000.

Codeup said it has acquired space in downtown Dallas for its campus, but the company is waiting for approval from the Texas Workforce Commission before officially opening.

Codeup offers two boot camp pathways: web development and data science.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in web development occupations is expected to grow by 13 percent by 2028, with 21,000 new jobs in the field added in that time.

Total job growth of all occupations is projected to increase by 5 percent over the same period.

The median annual wage for web developers was $69,000 in 2018, compared with the $38,600 median annual wage for all workers.

The average salary for data scientists is over $96,000, and the entry-level salary is just under $86,000 annually, according to PayScale.com.

Over the last 18 months, Codeup said it’s placed 97 percent of its San Antonio graduates in jobs.

“(W)e believe the outcomes of our graduates far outweigh the number of campuses we have,” Codeup CEO Jason Straughan said in the blog post. “With our product refined, we were ready to expand.”

The company said it looked at expanding into cities across the country, but is choosing to expand in Texas because of the concentration of major cities and large companies in need of tech workers.

Codeup didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

“We are not creating a second Codeup, but we are opening another campus,” the blog post reads. “The time is right, and Texas is ready.”
