Founded in France in 2014, Wild Code School operates campuses in 24 locations across Europe, all offering five-month coding bootcamps aimed at meeting skills gaps in the tech sector.
“In the wake of Brexit, I believe even more opportunities will open up in Ireland”
The company plans to eventually expand to Irish counties Cork and Galway and increase its student intake from 45 to 300 by 2025.
Speaking at the opening of the Dublin campus the organisation’s international founder, Anna Stépanoff, said the city was selected because of the ongoing growth in demand for skilled tech employees in Ireland.
“Ireland has been established for a number of years now as a hub for international tech companies, and that brings with it huge demand for workers with up-to-date tech skills,” she said.
“In the wake of Brexit, I believe even more opportunities will open up in Ireland for those with the skills that leading employers need.
“That’s why we’ve selected Dublin as the location for our newest Wild Code School campus, and why we have set ambitious targets for growth across Ireland in the coming years,” Stépanoff continued.
Since it was established in France, Wild Code School has trained over 2,000 developers across Europe.
