The Data Standard
Data Engineering is an interdisciplinary profession requiring a mix of technical and business knowledge to have the most impact. Starting a career in data engineering, it is not always clear what is necessary to be successful. Some people believe that there is a need to learn particular technologies (e.g., Big data); others believe it is a high degree of software engineering expertise; others believe it is focusing on business.
There are five main tips this podcast would give to data engineers starting their careers:
- Learn fast
- Don’t succumb to the technology hype
- Data Engineering is not all about coding or technology or data
- Coding is still an important part of the job
- Know your data and where it is coming from
