Techlahoma Outreach

We have 4 main methods of outreach, stewardship, and community development.

  1. User Groups - We help Oklahomans become workforce ready by creating free training each week through hour-long lectures on job skills.
  2. Conferences - Techlahoma creates and sponsors conferences on in-demand STEM skills. We offer many scholarships and record and release the conference videos online to empower the community.
  3. Spaces - We create physical and virtual spaces to encourage stewardship and networking. Techlahoma has a homebase at StarSpace46 in OKC and 36 Degrees North in Tulsa. Our online community boasts more than 500 members.
  4. Software - Techlahomas write and release Open Source Software - which is free for everyone to use. We make an impact by coding for the betterment others.

 User groups

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.

 

Spaces

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.

Events

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.
