Most coding bootcamps and code schools vary in their requirements. Most do require you to be 18 years or older, simply for the sake of signing legal documents. Beyond that, it totally depends on the expectations the school or bootcamp has on its participants. Some have very high expectations of the students, and thus require that come in with some experience, from formal education or self taught. The reason being, if you want to train people in the timeframe of a few months, you sort of need students to have an idea of what is going on.
I attended a code school in San Francisco, Holberton school, that did not require any previous experience. One of the reasons they could do that successfully is because it’s a two year program. Two years is still not a long time, but it does allow for the school to lay some foundations and fundamentals. The only requirements for application are that you are 18, and able to work in the US. Beyond that, if you are dedicated, ready to learn, work hard, and love programming, you don’t need much else.
