Want to know what a career in Data Engineering entails? Want to know the tools and platforms that a modern data engineer needs to master? Join us for a 2-hour online session on data engineering career path!

Data Engineers play an essential role in organizations that collect and manage big data. In a typical data organization, data engineers gather and collect the data, store it, do batch processing or real-time processing on it, and serve it via the database to a data scientist who can easily query it. In essence, data engineers help manage how data flows in an Enterprise data architecture.

The market has seen a surge in demand for data scientists in the past several years and we see almost all universities and colleges offer some kind of data science courses and programs. However, data engineers are usually harder to train and source because the program needs to be very practical/hands-on and there is not much theory to teach. The open source communities are also pushing out new tools and platforms on a regular basis which makes teaching data engineering challenging because materials need to be updated rapidly to keep up with the latest trends. At WeCloudData, we have heard from many hiring managers and recruiting agencies say that while the demand for data engineers is great, data engineer talents are even harder to find compared to data scientists.

The Programming for Data Engineers course focuses on helping students to acquire the fundamental knowledge to become proficient in Scala programming, Spark basics, Linux, and containerization technologies such as Docker. This course will be essential for professionals who want to advance to other data engineering courses. If you are interested in becoming a data engineer and work with big data, this course will be a must-have!
