It’s official! Coding Dojo is up and running, and to roll. We’re already 3 weeks in for our first cohort, a class of 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.


Launch Party

Thank you to our sponsors, guests of honor, and the over 0 attendees who joined us for our launch party! It was a fun night of food, drinks and insightful discussions about the future of in Tulsa and Oklahoma state. Topics of discussion included the future of education in OK, the shortage of local dev talent, the rapid growth of developer needs from industries not directly in (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!

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