Galvanize is opening a community in Austin.
The network of coworking spaces and learning institution chose Austin as its seventh location due to the high concentration of startup activity and large tech companies. 
Located in the 2nd Street District, Galvanize will have more than 25,000 sq. feet of classrooms, private suites, open work areas, and event areas. Leading up to opening day, the Galvanize team will work with local artists, furniture designers, and businesses to bring the unique Austin community and culture into the campus. The campus will be equipped to run five simultaneous full­time software development and/or data courses and provide space for more than 250 members.
“Austin is already a top city for startups and larger tech companies. We’re excited about being part of this vibrant community and bringing our education platform to the region to meet the growing demand for software developers and data scientists,” said Lawrence Mandes, Co­founder of Galvanize, in a statement. “Austin represents a natural expansion for Galvanize, augmenting our existing campus network in San Francisco, Seattle, and Colorado.”
Leading up to the opening in February 2016, Galvanize will host meetups, part­time workshops, and info sessions.
