As a beginner you have tons of options!
That would actually fit right in to my program at Code Career Academy.
For immediate info check out http://codecareeracademy.com/fall-winter-2016-2017/.
I offer an a la carte option that is more expensive than the full price listed on the site, but if you knew for sure you wanted to do the whole program you could pay the full price, then I'd let you split up the class over 2 years (saves money over the literal a la carte price).
Email me if you would like more info.

Hi. I found your program while searching for a bootcamp for data analysis careers. Two questions.
1. I live in Virginia. Do I need to relocate to attend your program?
2. Is there any pre-requisite requirements(e.g. math/science background, etc.) to attend your program?
NYC Data Science Academy only offers an in-person bootcamp in New York City. You will need to quit your job and pay for living expenses of 3 months or longer in NYC.
I work at the first online data science bootcamp for working professionals. Check out our curriculum: www.k2datascience.com
A good applicant will have experience with programming or be able to self-study the basics for our technical assessment. Applicants should have also taken a college level statistics & probability course, and review any topics that may be unfamiliar now.August 24, 2016
The greatest thing about freecodecamp (aside from being free!) is that you can start at any time and work at your own pace. Definitely check it out at https://www.freecodecamp.com---and be sure to leave a review of your experience at https://www.switchup.org/bootcamps/free-code-campAugust 18, 2016
You'll have to research the options in your area, but I can tell you how I do part-time at my school. I hold classes four days a week for two hours each (M-Th) and the from 8 am until 12 pm on Saturday. There are office hours on top of that and mandatory code reviews.
My program is 16-18 weeks (depending on whether or not you take the pre-course) and I break the main section into 4 classes that are 4 weeks long each. I leave a gap week of office hours at the end of each class (so they are really 5 weeks long) so that you can finish your projects.
I think that gives a good balance of lecture time and project time. My goal is not to teach you everything in 16-18 weeks, but rather to teach you to master a reasonable amount that you can build on after the bootcamp ends. I use the ...August 13, 2016
There are some great coding bootcamps in/near vancouver--check out:
1) CodeCore Bootcamp https://www.switchup.org/bootcamps/codecore-bootcamp

4) Red Academy https://www.switchup.org/bootcamps/red-academy
SwitchUp doesn't offer classes, they are simply here to help bring transparency to & information about the coding bootcamp industry, but check out those places list above! Lighthouse Labs and Brainstation both have some great student reviews! Hope this helps

At this point I'm pretty sure the Iron Yard is a full time only program. That means unless your job is in the evenings and on weekends, you wouldn't be able to work and attend classes. There are some bootcamps that offer a part-time option. I don't know which city you are in, but here in the Atlanta area I offer a part-time option at my school, Code Career Academy (http://codecareeracademy.com/fall-winter-2016-2017/). I believe that Tech Talent South also offers a part-time option as does General Assembly.
Hope this helps.

That’s a great question. Before I jump into a simple yes or no, let me ask you this: What are your goals for attending a code bootcamp?
Our full-time courses are meant to help people begin completely new careers as software developers in 12 weeks. We believe that in order to be successful as new developers in such a short time period, students really need to learn in an immersive environment and focus completely on learning. That’s one of the reasons we worked so hard to offer cost-of-living loans—so that our students can get the absolute most of the experience (more information on cost-of-living loans here: https://www.theironyard.com/courses/tuition#financing).
We’ve put a lot of thought, research and years of experience into our immersive learning experience, ...August 11, 2016

Also, check out this from Launch Academy! Looks like they are now offerign a free intro course!July 30, 2016
Could you be a bit more specific? Are you looking just to "try out" coding to see if it is right for you, or are you looking for bootcamps that allow you to try 2 weeks before making the commitment? Are you interested in something online, or in person (i.e. limited to a city/state?)?
If it is the online route, then you have a ton of options. Treehouse offers 1-2 weeks free intro, while sites sunch as freecodecamp, codecademy, coursera, youtube, and many more are all free.
If you are looking to check out a bootcamp/curriculum, I suggest you reach out any bootcamps yo have in mind. Many have pre-work, or would be happy to talk to you about their curriculums.July 30, 2016
Sadly there are no Data Science bootcamps in or near the Chicago area. Most of them are located in NYC or SF, with some popping up in Austin / Denver / Seattle.
Maybe you should check out Peaks Academy (www.peaksacademy.com). They are a newly launched Data Science bootcamp. They are fully remote and have a part-time schedule. The target demographic is working professionals who can commit time during nights and weekends, but do not want to quit their job and do an in-person bootcamp.July 23, 2016
Metis, which runs data science bootcamps in New York and San Francisco, just expanded to Chicago. Our first Chicago bootcamp begins in January 2017, which I realize falls outside your window, but perhaps your schedule has changed since the question was posted. You can learn more about our Chicago data science bootcamp at our upcoming open house on November 10. http://www.meetup.com/Metis-Chicago-Data-Science/events/234275827/July 23, 2016
Data Science Dojo here...
We have a bootcamp scheduled in Chicago from Oct 3rd - 7th. You can find a detailed schedule of all of our upcoming bootcamps here:
Depending upon your situation, you may want to consider Data Science for Social Good based out of Chicago. Rayid Ghani, the Director of the program is highly respected in the data science community. They are one of the very few high quality data science bootcamps out there.July 23, 2016
