Coding Dojo Tulsa Launches!

It’s official! Coding Dojo Tulsa is up and running, and ready to roll. We’re already 3 weeks in for our first cohort, a class of 12 students who started this September. To commemorate our opening and the new journey that our students are soon to embark on, let’s take a look back at sights and sounds of our path to launch.

 

Coding Dojo Launch Party

Thank you to our sponsors, guests of honor, and the over 100 attendees who joined us for our launch party! It was a fun night of food, drinks and insightful discussions about the future of tech in Tulsa and Oklahoma state. Topics of discussion included the future of tech education in OK, the shortage of local dev talent, the rapid growth of developer needs from industries not directly in tech (such as the Bank of Oklahoma), and where the community wants to see the economy in 5 to 10 years. If you’re a local Oklahoman, you would have been proud to be there!

Learn to Code Workshops

Thank you to our workshop attendees for coming out and supporting programming education. The future of tech talent starts with education, and having fun doing it. From building your first PACMAN game in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to learning the basics of Java, we had a blast working through these projects with everyone. Looking forward to all our future workshops! To sign-up, check-out our meetup page for upcoming events. Stay tuned!

This is only the beginning! In due time, together we’ll grow our little-known tech community into one of the top tech hubs in the region.
