Curious to see if there are any that have gone before me that have found characteristics of programs that were or would have been especially helpful.

Startup Institute isn't just for women, but the male: female ratio is good, as is age diversity—my cohort included people ages 22-61. The program is geared toward career changers, so it helps you to position yourself in the market and network into the tech industry while building skills. www.startupinstitute.com
Hello, I am 44 and have been on "sabbatical" from Web development for 12 years. Right now I want to switch to something else so am looking for a Data Science Bootcamp. I consider myself new to that industry.
My requirements are mainly that it be Online, I'd like it self paced, but my experience tells me that its better if its intensive and you have to push yourself.
I'd probably like to see that some of the mentors/teachers on the bootcamp be women that have moved fast in their careers.
Not sure what else.. Anyone else have ideas?
We Can Code IT, a 5-star rated coding boot camp in Cleveland, very much welcomes women in tech! http://bootcamp.wecancodeit.org.
Our bootcamp would fit the bill if you are interested in Data Science (www.k2datascience.com). We believe strongly in tackling the gender imbalance of the technlogy industry. Our head of curriculum and one of our teaching assistants are women. We also offer 1 half-tuition scholarship specifically for female applicants each cohort (www.k2datascience.com/edith).
Check out our syllabus and reach out if you have any questions.
