The profits of Thunder Plains and 200 OK go directly to fund the tech community's free STEM training events, sponsorship of other free local tech events, purchases of shared resources (like chairs, projectors, and A/V gear to livestream and record events), diversity scholarship tickets to paid events. These events uplift Oklahoma as a competitive tech hub, encourage and promote Oklahomans as national conference speakers, and support the entire Techlahoma ecosystem. By purchasing tickets and providing Sponsorships, the community directly supports our efforts to teach, train, and connect Oklahomans.
