Making a Difference
The Techlahoma Foundation empowers everyday tech workers like programmers, designers, DBA's, and others because Techlahoma was made for the benefit of the tech community by the tech community. We are a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)3 founded and run by software engineers and tech industry professionals.
We achieve our mission to advance Oklahomans by organizing and sponsoring many free events and conferences. We educate professionals, students, and hobbyists on a range of subjects like: software development, databases, mobile apps, information security, and programming best practices. We write and release open source software which provides skilled training for in-demand jobs and helps our members become workforce ready. Through online meeting spaces we create a network of skilled professionals welcoming to all beginners or seniors alike.In partnership with StarSpace46 and 36 Degrees North we provide meeting spaces to train IT and STEM professionals in Oklahoma, which has encouraged out-of-state companies to re-evaluate Oklahoma as a tech-industry leader. Our weekly events combat the loss of skilled technologists by actively retaining talented tech workers that contribute to Oklahoma's economy and tech community.
With every event we are investing in the tech leaders and future of Oklahoma.
