CodeBoxx transforms Tampa Bay into a major tech hub

CodeBoxx, the St. Petersburg-based technology training company, is working assiduously to help aspiring coders, engineers, and designers pursue their passions in the technology sector. Their courses and dedicated mentors and coaches are churning a new generation of innovators and industry disruptors. CodeBoxx itself boasts an 80% job placement rate for those who go through their cohort academy, and researchers forecast that there will be nearly 700,000 new tech jobs by 2031.

The company’s next cohort is set to launch January 23, 2023. This provides students with 16-week in-person and virtual programs, and deferred tuition is available. CodeBoxx hosts a full-time, on-campus coding academy in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg at the Thrive co-working space. Those who attend will learn in-demand technology skills and coding languages in one of their vibrant classrooms.


CodeBoxx cohort supports the next generation of coders

After registration, students can test the waters in CodeBoxx’s two-week training camp. Pass, and you’ll move on to their 14-week bootcamp alongside a coach who’s invested in your success. Moving on in the cohort, students can hone their technical and leadership skills to find a specialization that best fits their strengths. From that point, your coach will provide immense assistance with your job hunt.

CodeBoxx wants to engage as many future full-stack developers as possible to help close the opportunity gap in our community, and they want to remove the cost prohibitive nature of the academic and technical learning environment. Deferred payment plans, and pay as you learn plans are available.

With deferred tuition, you won’t pay for program costs until you land a job in technology. This is available for full time, online, or hybrid learning.


This is a good time to get into tech. In 2021, Forbes named the Tampa area the top emerging tech hub in the US. The Tampa area is responsible for over 25% of Florida’s tech jobs, and there has been a massive surge in tech jobs in recent years. Over 2,000 new tech jobs arrived in this area alone in 2021, in addition to the already vibrant community.

Tampa Bay is attracting tech leaders

The economy has been attracting some high-profile investors eager to get in on the action. Most notably, Bill Gates and former hedge fund manager Jeffrey Vinik have invested $3.5 billion in real estate geared toward tech.

VCs are also playing a large role in Tampa’s tech emergence. Marc Blumenthal has spearheaded Florida Funders, which is finding, funding and building the next generation of tech companies. Florida Funders targets many early-stage tech startups with investments ranging from $500,000 to $2 million.

Sign up for CodeBoxx Cohort on their website. The CodeBoxx campus is located at Thrive in downtown St. Pete (136 4th St N Ste 201).
