Techlahoma's mission is to advance Oklahoma's grassroots technology community. Our non-profit aims to empower Oklahomans who want to foster a diverse, inclusive and active tech community.
Making a Difference
We achieve our mission by organizing and sponsoring many free events and conferences that train Oklahomans on software development, database administration, mobile app and desktop app coding, information security, and programming best practices.
We write and release open source software, provide meeting spaces, and create communal online spaces to help steward the OK tech community. With every free event we are training the future tech leaders of OK and beyond.
Our community serves students, professionals, and software, hardware, and tech enthusiasts alike who are interested in the information technology sector. We are Oklahomans teaching Oklahomans.
Oklahoma is a vibrant place to meet fellow technologists. There are free educational events every week, like OKC.js, Tulsa Web Devs, OKC JUG, OKC Python, Nerdy Girls Code Club and more! It's never too late to learn how to code.
Techlahoma wants to provide spaces, both virtual and physical for folks to interact. You can join us now on slack. Coming soon in Oklahoma City, we are partnering with Starspace46 to provide coworking and event space.
Techlahoma wants to help Oklahoman's engage the greater technology community by hosting and supporting major events. We currently sponsor Thunder Plains, 200 OK, B-Sides OK, Tulsa RailsBridge and SQL Saturday.
Oklahomans love open source software, and helping their community. There are a number of projects completed and currently underway in both Oklahoma City (Code for OKC) and Tulsa (Code for Tulsa).
Oklahomans need a space that provides adequate coworking and is a home for Techlahoma and its OKC User Groups. StarSpace46 can be this place as well as a hub for entrepreneurial meetups, a center for innovation, incubator for new startups and a venue for events and conferences. StarSpace46 and Techlahoma are working together to fulfill our mission of supporting Oklahoman technologists. This is why we are running a campaign to raise funds to pay Techlahoma's discounted rent at StarSpace46.
