About Us

Building Oklahoma's technology workforce by providing high quality coding bootcamps, accessible to all.



OK Coders was founded in 2014 by the University of Oklahoma’s Ronnie K. Irani Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth (I-CCEW) to help meet Oklahoma’s growing demand for software developers. Oklahoma’s nascent startup scene combined with its high quality of life and low cost of living is attracting national attention, but there is an unmet demand for technical talent.

What We Offer

OK Coders offers beginner and intermediate coding bootcamps for adults 18+ in OKC and Tulsa. Bootcamps cover current development technologies and are taught by software engineers from the local tech community, making OK Coders ideal for anyone ready to kickstart their coding career or pick up a new hobby. OK Coders bootcamps run 4 hours a week on evenings and weekends to accommodate full-time workers and students.
