The list of Data Science Bootcamps is now live at http://datascience.community/bootcamps
The list currently contains 11 programs. The programs range from full-time 12 week programs to part-time online training.
Data Science is one field that has definitely adopted the newer, innovative forms of learning. MOOCs are full of data science related courses and the List of Data Science Bootcamps definitely shows the variety of new techniques being used. For example, Zipfian Academy uses a 12-week immersive program to train students and work on projects together. Insight, Persontyle, and The Data Incubator focus on filling in the gaps of recent PhDs, and other programs such as Statistics.com and Leada are focusing on online programs. Leada will be an interesting program to watch in the coming months and years. The program is definitely different and could be a game-changer if it continues to grow.

I wanted you to know I have followed your blog off and on since January 2013- when i decided to make this transition. Inspired by you , I started writing my on blog and have just made it public:
thanks for sharing!
Thanks for following, your blog looks good.
According to Insight boot camp website, they do not require Ph.D:
“The Insight Data Engineering Fellowship is open to anyone with a strong background in math, computer science and software engineering fundamentals, coming from positions in industry or directly from Bachelors, Masters and PhD programs.”
Ah yes, you are correct. I will update that shortly.
